In 2014, the clients found the design team so that they design the first store that clients had sophisticatedly prepared for the business for five years. However, the operation of the first store didn’t run smoothly. But after the client's adjustment, the second store was reopened in a district located in the west-central of Tainan City in 2018. The design team takes into account the restaurant's customer base, meals, and the characteristics of the first store in the minds of customers in this project. The design team hopes to reserve the consistent color tone of the exterior wall of the building with the interior designs, so they come up with the design. The design team adopts the CLOUDS installation art of R. & E. Bouroullec, which also adopts in the first store. The CLOUDS installation art is full of spiritual significance. Also, it enhances the visual effect in the space, and it presents a process. The client’s process of having a part-time job in the café, and decided to found the shop. Thus, the client had the preparation for the star-up for five years. The clients persist in adopting good ingredients in order to present the persevering spirit. In addition, the design team takes into account the functionality, store atmosphere, and budget, adopting the rail lights of the first store above the bar to arrange the space. With the sharing of clients’ past business experience, the design team designs the seats that are faced to the windows, so the guests can walk around freely and enjoy the scenery outside the window like an old friend visiting.
