House On The Moon is a dessert restaurant helmed by chefs who are recognized in the Michelin Guide. The project site is a duplex unit "suspended" in a triple volume space accessible only via two link ways across each level. The restaurant sits on Level One where traffic movements are prominent and Level Two a retail space for takeaways and merchandise.
The enigmatic of the moon has always baffled us in awe. Imagine living in the cosmic space without weight and force, the typology of anti-gravity and imbalance naturally surfaced. Devised as a space age architecture formed by fragmented objects from the cosmic world. Two shards punctuated into the duplex resulting in a continuous connection between the two floors and onto a base which is core foothold of the design, therefore it formulated the main dining space on the lower level. Other random pieces behaved like floating objects around the dining space and upper floor which is designated as an extension of the core base. Black glass is used for the bar countertop to create a deep but muted reflection of the structures and its lighting effects. The reflection adds on to the and bizarre visual connections to the surroundings.
