art of detailing


This is a detail of the ribbing pattern of our partition wall of the restaurant, echoing the curved shaped of Terengganu “sampans” or fisherman boats, made entirely by hand to this day and laminated carefully to emulate the same intricate and sophisticated detail that goes into making these wonderful traditional water crafts of this eastern state of Peninsula Malaysia.

Although limited in design ‘moderations’, we have kept most of the geometry to its simplest form with strong references to the architecture of the boat industry prevalent in this ‘eroded’ part of the world, being the lamination and the craftsmanship that is required to achieve the final result.
