This project is a renovation of a restaurant located at an upscale area in the perimeter of Jakarta bay. The client ask to elevate the ground floor, always in trouble of flooding due to the rise of sea level, rearrange the layout and add a mezzanine floor, while giving a new identity to the space.

The concept is a cave like, double height open dining area, using natural materials and glass at the sea side to capture the view, also intended as a floating sea lightbox during the night. Cross ventilation and skylights are provided to reduce power consumption.
