Being located in Hai Phong, an
industrial port city, the new Pizza 4P’s restaurant is designed as a hub to share
happiness with loved ones as well as the experience of the dining journey
of the city’s history and culture.
To maximize the experience of a rich
cultural space, the local industrial materials are chosen for the restaurant
By using the available metal chains, fire
brick, recycled lighting fixtures in the dockyard, the values of Hai Phong city can
be discovered in the restaurant. By this way, not only the residents but
also the visitors can re-find those values when enjoying meals.
Upon opening the door to the restaurant,
light metal chain curtains welcome customers. The entrance area and dining area
are softly separated by these metal chain curtains and layers of climber
Besides, lighting fixtures are recycled from
robust marine lighting found in the junkyard. Each of them has a different
shape, bringing uniqueness to space and creating an emotional atmosphere with
their material massiveness.
The selection and
arrangement of such local materials created a unique dining experience with the docksides
atmosphere. The space inspired by the local culture
and history values will become the “Ark pavilion” to preserve and represent
values to the future.
