Located in a zone of old factories, Yaoyue Restaurant was once an unused terrace. Different from the noisy city outside, the designer wants to integrate nature and industry style together and creates a “floating green island in the city”.
The planar graph of the restaurant looks like the letter L, which enables the users to see different views when they change their steps. The whole space can be divided into three kinds of spaces: the outdoor space, the public space and the compartments.
