Lian Xiang Lou is a brand founded in 1889 with a history of 132 years.



With the height of the two-story building, we blur the boundary of the building by opening indoor and outdoor spaces, using water features and low walls to build a semi-enclosed Cantonese courtyard and plant a lush lychee tree to form the site's botanical landmark. Combining and optimising the relationship between the surrounding ground paving and lighting creates a group of pleasant landscapes for the city streets. It expands an "in-between space" for the indoor space that can be integrated with the outdoor environment.



We get an atrium area by partially removing beams and a small part of the floor. Here, a set of highly symbolic stairs is designed. It connects two large spaces on the left and right in the horizontal dimension. The impressive red mirror material also creates a stage sense with a maze effect in the vertical dimension.



The story of Lian Xiang Lou begins with “Lian”, which means lotus. Lotus seeds, stems, leaves, pods, and lotuses have become spatial language and installation elements. The mirrored ceiling, the light and shadow of water patterns, and the elegant encounter of red and green tones are continuously interpreted and strengthened with the progress of the space level.



We want the guests to feel captivated by the well-designed dining experience and the brand story told by the space.
