Le Cocun

“A complex fractal approach and sensuous private rooms”
A wine restaurant composed of the two layers of ground and basement floors. The approach to the ground floor, pursues complexity with polyhedral forms made of wooden panels while also presenting an organic feel. This phase-space, accentuates the relationship between time and space, and retains a precarious balance as an approach to the entrance while being drawn into the complex alterations in form. At the floor of the open-ceiling space, glass lighting is scattered as if to trace the protrusions on the ceiling. Towards the back, private rooms surrounded by sensuous surfaces of scraped-stucco walls induce a fanstastical atmosphere.
