Competition Introduction

The goal of this competition is to design a restaurant that embodies the theme of "Extreme Taste," offering a unique and immersive dining experience for patrons. The restaurant's architecture should reflect and enhance the concept of intense flavors, pushing the boundaries of traditional culinary experiences. The concept of "Extreme Taste" revolves around creating an environment that stimulates all the senses, particularly focusing on the gustatory experience. Drawing inspiration from bold and adventurous flavors, the design should evoke excitement, surprise, and delight. The architecture should be visually striking, integrating elements that challenge conventional norms.

Space Planning
Dining Areas: The layout should accommodate a variety of dining experiences, including communal tables, private booths, and chef's tables for interactive experiences. Consider creating distinct zones that provide different levels of intimacy and ambience.
Kitchen and Bar: The kitchen and bar areas should be open, allowing guests to witness the culinary creations and mixology techniques firsthand. Use design techniques to enhance the immersive experience.
Lounge and Waiting Area: Design a comfortable lounge or waiting area where guests can relax before their meal. This space should exude a sense of anticipation and intrigue, providing glimpses of the dining areas while maintaining an element of surprise.

Interior Design
• Materials and Finishes
• Lighting
• Artistic Installations

Carefully consider the acoustic design to maintain an energetic yet comfortable dining atmosphere. Incorporate sound-absorbing materials, acoustic panels, and strategically placed surfaces to mitigate excessive noise while preserving the restaurant's lively ambiance.

Outdoor Space
If feasible, create an outdoor dining area that complements the overall theme. This space should provide a seamless transition from the interior, allowing guests to experience "Extreme Taste" in an al fresco setting. Consider incorporating elements such as fire features, lush greenery, or water installations to enhance the outdoor dining experience.

Create a restaurant that immerses patrons in an extreme gustatory experience, pushing the boundaries of taste and design.

Select a site that best suits the design theme. Site location can be in any part of the world.
