Architectural and Structural Design:

In collaboration with Arhi.pro, DWA - Design Studio meticulously developed preliminary and detailed architectural and structural designs for the restaurant. The layout maximizes the use of space, ensuring a seamless flow between different areas. High ceilings and strategic placement of pillars contribute to an open and airy feel, amplifying the sense of grandeur.

The use of natural light was carefully considered in the design, with large windows strategically positioned to provide captivating views of the cityscape while welcoming ample daylight. This integration of nature's elements further reinforces the concept of harmony and unity with the environment.


Mechanical, Electrical, and Plumbing (MEP) Design:

To ensure the comfort and functionality of the restaurant, Arhi.pro played a crucial role in developing MEP designs. The HVAC system was engineered to maintain a comfortable temperature throughout the year, allowing patrons to relish the dining experience regardless of external weather conditions. Advanced lighting and sound systems were integrated to set the perfect ambiance for different times of the day, seamlessly complementing the overall design concept.
