Creative Crews designs a boxy cafe featuring green marble wall tiles in downtown Bangkok garden

January 21, 2021

Located in the centre of the Nai Lert Park in downtown Bangkok, the recently-opened Caviar Café is a converted gift shop within the food and beverages zone adjacent to Som Khit Alley.

Designed by Creative Crews, the objective is to immerse users in the abundant greenery of this unique urban oasis. Designed with a main free-standing island bar in the centre, the venue can accommodate stage performances. The bar and seats are located such that guests’ views are directed away from the carpark and towards the lush greenery.

The materials selected are reminiscent of shimmering lights that shine through the foliage that surrounds them. The floor is laid with polished dark granite embedded with silver grains. Counter walls are clad with handcrafted green concave marble tiles that reflect lighting unevenly and distribute organic reflections onto surrounding surfaces and topped with white glittered surface. The ceiling is lined with silver leaf. The reflective motifs extend even to the pearl serving spoons.

The caviar display box is designed as a simple understated sophistication, drawing inspiration from a jewellery box. It is equipped with cooling equipment to ensure no fogging and unwanted water vapour appear on the display glass. The design elements aim to accentuate the atmosphere of the space to complement the overall dining experience.
