Substance has recently completed the interiors for new restaurant The Ocean in Hong Kong

Located in Repulse Bay, the new restaurant offers excellent views of the sea through huge floor-to-ceiling windows. A colour palette of dark blues and cyan has been used throughout the interior, and these sit next to sandy brown finishes that complete the beach-like illusion.

“The client was looking for a venue that would be dedicated to the ocean. We looked into an immersive experience, starting above and below the water surface and played with reflections, transparencies and perspectives,” says Maxime Dautresme, creative director and founder of Substance.

The restaurant focuses on giving patrons an intimate dining affair, and, for this reason, includes three private dining rooms. Each of these is surrounded by a jellyfish aquarium, submerging guests into the ocean and providing a fun talking-piece.

To create a completely unique experience, a variety of diverse materials were used, including bleached wood, hand-blown glass, stone, ratan and ceramic tiles.

Tableware and furnishings take cues from coral, anemone spirals and the Fibonacci sequence found in shells, and each has been designed to reflect the organic geometry found within the ocean. Portal frames that surround the restaurant are flourished with silver leaf for added detail.
