Designphase DBA | Asia Square Food Garden
In this great urban landscape, in a dialog with the ‘City Room’ outside we wanted to introduce a garden in the interior space acting as a ‘natural’ counter balance for the inhabitants of Asia Square to experience.The Food Garden will give people the opportunity to stay in touch with nature in the comfort of an air-conditioned space. A chance to find natural tranquility like one would find in a city park, lounging on meadows. The overall area of this garden will stretch more than 170 meters from one end to the other when both towers are finished.
Following natural ‘shapes’ a garden would not be rectangular or square. The concept led to a much more organic, flowing and meandering space. Curving lines are visible surrounding timber ceiling elements. To enhance the garden feel this warm natural material is used at the most visible open surface of the space, the ceiling. The Food Garden provides a variety of scenery, as visual & psychological relief from the strict geometric discipline of ‘office life’. People can experience ‘al Fresco’ dining without being exposed to the elements. The interior retail and F&B space at Asia Square has great visual diversity; from intimate arrangements to a vast vista on the City Room and the view beyond through a 12-meter high glass ‘window’.
Natural daylight will flow into the seating area and enhancing this we have also introduced a translucent material feature ceiling above the main seating area. This backlit ceiling will offer the ‘sunlight’ experience at all hours of the day and night.The fine dining quarter of the Food Garden feels more intimate; here a more delicate interpretation of the garden concept provides the perfect circumstance for the fine dining experience at Imperial Treasure.Designphase DBA
