The existing building is located in close proximity to the Reinlpark, a recently renovated park with an outdoor pool for kids. The primary design idea was to provide an architectural solution which could extend the green spaces of the neighbouring park onto the building. Descending from the rooftop to the ground floor, a secondary structure out of metallic grids was designed on the building’s facade to reinforce the green effect of the existing park on the building’s facade by planting vegetation. This “Green Grid” provides a vegetal covering which improves visual effects of the building, contributes to the reduction of CO2, saves environment and improves local neighbourhood sustainability.

Which color could best reflect the characteristic of a building located on “Goldschlagstrasse”? The golden color as the name of the street implies, is a symbol of luxury and wealth and gives you a feeling of warmth and splendour. At first glance, it is the restaurant’s entrance on corner of Goldschlagstrasse and Reinlgasse which attracts attention through its charming appearance. A folding surface embraces the entrance glass box and invites every passer‐by to step inside. This folded surface reminds us more of table napkins at restaurants being folded into an abstract shape.

While you enter the restaurant, you encounter the bar & kitchen counter whose form is exactly driven from the external metallic element designed on the top of the main building providing its facade with a green layer of vegetation. Both the external lightweight element and the internal solid bar counter are located on a corner position; however there is no good visibility from street level toward the metallic structure on the roof and therefore the bar counter echoes the same design language by duplicating the external form in a smaller scale inside the restaurant.
