Featured store: Fast-casual Treehouse restaurant in Hong Kong
Fast-casual eatery Treehouse restaurant in Hong Kong has been built using lead-free eco-cement and reclaimed wood.
Designed by ST Design, the 170sqm store located in the Central district uses plant-based materials throughout.
“Our design is a harmony of natural and eco-friendly materials, with the aim to reflect the food and culture of the restaurant – plant-based, high-quality and environmentally-friendly,” said Stefano Tordiglione, creative director of ST Design.
The store’s exterior sign was installed with the name “Treehouse” rearranged. Floor-to-ceiling glass lets natural sunlight in, creating an ambient atmosphere inside.
The design team for Treehouse restaurant kept the original colours of materials because “such an approach is both environmentally friendly and sustainable, while evoking the feeling of a homely and cozy hideaway”.
“The whole interior design embodies Treehouse restaurant’s deep commitment to sustainable development,” Stefano said.
“We want to create an oasis in this busy concrete jungle, a homely space that triggers emotional responses such as enjoyment, reflection and sense of belonging. It is not only a sustainable restaurant, but also an opportunity for a sustainable lifestyle,”
