The restaurant is located inside a high-end apartment projects surrounded by low-rise buildings in the strategic area in District 2 with panoramic view of Binh Quoi peninsula across the Saigon River. The challenge is to best utilize the surrounding landscape while keep the natural structure of the land in tact.

D1 proposes that the project is to be designed as a series of organic cubicles that, from a far distance, imposes as a living organ breathing next to the river bank. The boundary between the building and the landscape is blurred, making the scenery of this land a beautiful cohesion while still allow for easy dismantling.

The main structure of the project is made of assembled wood, completely free of concrete for the floating part, reducing negative impacts on the environment. The inner structure and interior acts as a spine of a living creature in motion.
