Commissioned by local restaurant, La Riviera, to renovate their entry space, the concept behind the project was to produce a new atmosphere more sensual and suitable for the type of food served. Some of the sensibilities explored were pastry techniques like fondant, frosting and cake ornamentation. The reason behind the research was to produce a series of sensations using materials and form or specific perceptions, sensations and actions, basically interpreting wall, furniture and ceiling surfaces as frosting and fondant with ornament. The project’s scope included a new bar, wall ornaments and a ceiling installation. Due to an extremely tight budget, the team developed innovative processes to reduce cost while achieving the desired atmosphere.
