The link between the project and the central urban area made it imperative for the project to embody a "new" design concept. This required the designers to reevaluate the connection between the local youth culture and the timeless charm of traditional garden strolls, and to harmonize visual trends with beauty and balance the unfamiliar with the familiar throughout their creative process. The outcome is a restaurant that subtly places the wilderness experience into a modern retail complex, and a natural combination of an indoor garden expedition and the enjoyment of hotpot.
