• 4N Architects deliver contemporary and sustainable dim sum eatery

    22 October 2011

    Café Deco Group appointed 4N to design their latest restaurant, the 340m2 Dim Sum Bar in Tsim Sha Tsui. The eatery boasts many sustainable features, as well as delivering a stylish, contemporary space for casual dining.

    The project incorporates extensive use of LED lighting (about 95% of all lights), whilst a lighting control system allows different settings during day and evening to create suitable ambience while saving energy. Electrical kitchen appliances are used instead of gas appliances in order to minimize heat generation inside the kitchen, minimizing environmental pollution from air conditioning.

    The issue of carbon footprint reduction was also addresses with the choice of flooring and furnishings; no imported fixtures or fittings were used with all furnishings being sourced locally or from the mainland. “We are proud of this restaurant,” states Danny Ng, Managing Director, 4N. “As well as addressing a full range of environmental concerns, the eatery is innovative, original and stylish.”


    The 280-meter-tall Lumina Shanghai, developed by Henderson Land Group and designed by Gensler, is the tallest skyscraper in the Xuhui Riverside District.

    A sophisticated yet modern setting was derived by juxtaposition of Indochine-Vietnamese features and wood-fire inspired material palettes. Re-interpretation of the spatial order of a typical Indochine-Vietnamese mansion has been adopted to give hierarchy, layers and details to the space.
