Dining Space


The idea of CAVE project stems from ancient cave, from its interfacial relationship between gathered-twigs fire and warmth.While mentioning ancient cave, the pure and good scene,like people clustering around fire, singing and drinking,will then occur in our mind.

Designer would like to utilize the concept of cave on the interfacial relationship between people and space, space and space.The creation,  the cave-holes, combining sphere and wall, is used as the fundamental interface for the whole space.

These semi-round door and windows make it stand out the boxy buildings. Through any exterior door and windows, the bar table of CAVE CLUB can be seen at any angle. After steping inside, people will find it is a futher experience than standing outside.After steping inside, people will find it is a futher experience than standing outside. The space is independent but also with obscure boundary, semi-open booths and open-hall are all shaped by variety-size holes.

These spaces are no longer the traditional spacing, space all the elements of the modelling is clever and free. The semi-open space makes the whole space all the time, events, characters, vision, smell, hearing all feel fusion superposition together.Experience is open, but independent; So that people and space, space and space between the independent and mutual penetration.
