‘Operetta’ 即 ‘小歌剧’。 整个设计概念以 ‘表演艺术’ 贯通。 它将米芝莲厨师和调酒师的烹饪舞台呈现在客人眼前。
设计将历史悠久的意大利歌剧表演文化带给客人。 将纯味觉体验升华为一次17 - 18世纪艺术交织着现代设计的视觉享受。
2. 利用智慧调光玻璃 (Switchable Glass / Magic Glass)作为餐厅与厨房的间隔
这项目之所以能够达到/超越预期的目标, 是因为流程中我们在工程前进行物料控制, 确保数量及质素符合要求, 与客方及承建商确定工程图纸, 而且为了令工程过程顺利流畅, 每星期会在工地进行两次会议, 及考察。
"Operetta" means "small opera". The whole design is a unified concept of performing arts. It shows the culinary stage on which professional chefs and mixologists perform their skills.
To illustrate the restaurant’s unique concept of serving Italian classic dishes with a modern flavor profile, design materials and colours are a symphony of traditions and innovations.
Traditional wood, patterned fabrics, bricks, tiles are interweaved with modern metal constructions, mirrors and technology.
At the entrance is a glass door with a metal eye outline. It steers eyesight to the bar counter and acts as a bridge between performers and audience.
The bar area is made a modernized opera house. Ceiling and walls are decorated with baroque style oval domes and floral pattern, complemented by a wood parquet floor.
A modern arc shape bar counter and metal arc partition beside it represent elegant contour of performers. Backed by a floor-to-ceiling wine cabinet, mixologists perform their superb skills in front of guests seated at classic patterned sofas, tables and bar stools.
Alongside the metal arc partition is a corridor leading to a dining hall of a different vibe. Extenzo stretch ceiling is forged in contemporary mirror steel to accommodate a vintage brass lighting rack with traditional round light bulbs. The walls in red tiles are decorated with curves and arcs of different shapes and sizes to hint at elegant postures of performers.
Here, the feature eye concept appears as an oval switchable glass eye which unveils the kitchen where chefs crafting their dishes are visible.
It has made a history long Italian Opera culture reachable to the population. A dining experience is enhanced to become an appreciation of 17th and 18th century art crossed over with modern design.
Opera is a unique performing art originated in Italy. ‘Operetta’ is a pioneer in presenting this culture in the hospitality business.
The design becomes a media to present a valued culture associated with the brand. It enriches and livens interior design with meanings and stories. Traditional art is revitalized in an innovative approach while respecting its’ core values.
The project was designed and executed by two full time designers. They are Miss Monique LEE, our Design Director and our designer Mr. Leo CHAN.
1. Partitions and feature walls are constructed combining massive amount of metals with different materials.
2. The use of AI Switchable Glass as partition between dining hall and kitchen.
3. Red tiles are parquet on walls in a concave and convex pattern.
4. Material control procedures are in place to ensure compliance of qualitative and quantitative requirements.
5. Review and finalize technical drawings with employer and contractor.
6. Conduct two on-site visits and meetings on a weekly basis to ensure smooth and precise execution of project design.
Following the success of the first ‘Opera’ theme restaurant in Beijing, the project is the F&B group’s important step to explore business opportunities with the ‘Opera’ themed restaurant concept in Hong Kong. Located in a premiere shopping mall in the heart of the city, it has successfully gained reputation as an innovative Italian restaurant.
