LOCO; Hawaiian fusion cuisine
The design is inspired in the unique geography of Hawaii, a series of island, water, volcano, jungle, and different eco-zones, and to evoke the series of the islands. The whole space is designed open and airy. Both the dining and bar areas is split into several floating parts surrounded by shuttered glasses that represent water for the circulation.
The green wall and layered wood ceiling are applied to highlight not only forest feeling, but also the three different eco-zones of Hawaii by the different scale and density of them from outside to the central space.
Furthermore, the sculptural green wall represents the sharply carved slopes of the valley, which was born from the history of volcano, and the whole fluidity inside-out spaces, and the warm color schemes bring the joyful welcome atmosphere.
