The foundation of this design is grounded on the grasp of emotion for the individuals who leave their hometowns, relocating to the unfamiliar cities to battle for their paths in life. The fast-paced urban environment, city congestion, noise pollution and exhaustion from work are the furthermost typical issues that city dwellers would be fronting in their everyday lives. At times of feeling lost and insecurity, individuals often reminiscent of the scene of their hometown. They recall the carefree childhood with game time; some of them chase across the railway; some of them swung with their besties.  At home, the taste of home-cooked food would be unforgettable and heartwarming. As the one to leave home and fight for a better life, these people hope to recollect the breath of cheerfulness, gathering up their courage to deal with everyday complications again.

By relishing their meal in the restaurant, fetches them back to the old days when they spent their lovely times with the loved ones and appreciate the local food. Not only has the space, the food itself signified the precious memory and irreplaceable taste of the past.  Soundlessly, they perceive the joy to be home and the flavor of blissfulness in this mindfully crafted atmosphere.

The design objective is to create a sense of detachment from realism and to an imaginative dining atmosphere that can awaken someone’s cognitive reaction of their own life story. The representation of the elements and figures are crafted from the emotional and transitional feeling of the story. Nonetheless, the outcome intention to be subjective and abstract that allows broader self-interpretation by the occupiers.  The design will incorporated sentimental elements which to create the mood of nostalgic, pop colours and humanize with natural components to create an anticipation in user experience.
