矗立現實生活中的夢幻場景,二層樓的建築體是位於屏東一間製作生巧克力的
複合式餐廳,外觀刻畫如同巧克力堆疊的意像,卻不經意在入口處留下美味痕
跡,串起美味招牌的叉子形體,巧妙地變成等待餐點的歇腳區,藉由特殊塗料
表現建築體表現外觀可可粉狀的質感,搭配仿鏽版及鐵管異材質設計,遠望著
就讓人感到驚喜,如同巧克力的濃郁絲綢質感,不僅侵襲著感官享受,苦甜滋
味正悄悄地襲捲味蕾。

劃開巧克力方塊體,量體採錯位區隔出三種不同感受的用餐場域,特意保留 50%的空地, 為的是要擁有流暢動線及舒適的用餐環境。 線條溝縫交織在浮出的地坪塊體,想像就站在巧克力磚上,彷彿有置身於巧克 力國度的錯覺!我們想打造被巧克力包覆的感受,所以在室內用餐區注入了許 多可可元素, 運用設計手法讓空間層次拉出不同的故事性,像是一側半開放包 廂區,藉由蕉葉圖騰及植栽牆,模擬如同可可生長的熱帶雨林。 空間中結合了許多異材質設計,利用黑色鐵件、鐵網延伸巧克力造型模具拼貼 出的立體壁面,對應著大面窗景,透過玻璃鑲嵌及穿透特性,除了拉近南臺灣 的暖陽明亮氣息,也延攬了窗外綠景入內,營造出輕工業風結合熱帶風情的用 餐氛圍。

在動線轉折處,特意增設靠窗的吧檯雅座區,就像是被濃郁黑巧克力包覆的可 可及白色內餡,白色滴水板材質由天花連結了櫃台與廊道的動線關係,不管是 地面上融化的巧克力意象、軟件傢俱的鋪陳,或是進到化妝室仿古花磚與透光 磚牆的質感表現,甚至工業貨櫃混搭被偷咬過的趣味表情,都讓空間融合進滿 滿的巧克力圖騰,形塑出不同的輪廓造型! 我們在大膽的揮灑下埋進空間各種不同的驚奇與驚喜,讓濃醇滋味在舌尖上跳 動,在打開味蕾的同時美好的感官享受正蔓延開來,除了成就食物與環境的故 事關係,更突顯出商業空間的獨特性。

A dreamlike scene set in reality, this two-story building is a fusion restaurant in Pingtung that makes chocolate ganache. Made to look like chocolates stacked upon one another, the entrance leaves a delectable trace, the fork lifting the delicious sign up cleverly serving as a resting area for guest waiting for their desserts, while special paint gave the outer walls the texture of cocoa powder. Coupled with unconventional materials such as faux rust boards and metal pipes, the building amazes even from afar. Silky as chocolate, it invades the senses and sweeps your taste buds away with its bittersweet taste.

Dividing up the chocolate cube, the inner space is sectioned into mismatched dining areas of different tones, deliberately leaving 50% of the space to allow a smooth flow of human traffic and create a comfortable eating environment.

Lines and crevices crisscross into raised squares. Imagine that you're standing on a chocolate brick, enveloped by a chocolate world! We wanted to create a feeling of being surrounded by chocolate, so we added a lot of cocoa elements to the indoor dining area, using design techniques to tell different stories in each space. For example, in one semi- open boxed area, banana leaf patterns and green walls imitate the tropical rainforests in which cocoa beans grow.

The space incorporated many designs with a mix and match of materials, such as using black metal pieces and metal nets to extend the 3D wall made with chocolate-shaped molds. Corresponding it is a large window that, through the mosaic and transparent nature of glass, not only brings in the warm brightness of southern Taiwan, but also shows a view of the greenery outside, creating a dining atmosphere of light industrial style merged with a tropical flair.

Bar seating by the window was added to create some change to the layout. Like cocoa and white fillings encased by rich black chocolate, the white draining board material connects layout of the counter and aisles from the ceiling. Whether it's the imagery of melting chocolate, the use of soft furnishings, vintage tiles and translucent brick walls in the restrooms, or the quirky way of how someone seemed to have taken a bite out of the industrial container, the whole place is full of chocolate themes, forming unique outlines.

We embedded many surprises among the bold design, letting the rich texture dance on our tongues, having enjoyment spread through the senses as we engage our palette, not just connecting food with the environment, but also displaying the uniqueness of the commercial space.
