concrete develops concepts.
we develop them in architecture, interior design, urban development and brand development.
concrete unites people.
we work with a team of 46 multidisciplinary creatives as architects, interior designers and visual marketeers to help businesses and institutions.
concrete loves provoking, confusing, philosophizing, scale models, haute cuisine, burgers, and (most of all) shattering dogmas.
concrete provides solutions.
no grand theories or abstract ideas. just things that work.
concrete likes to let the work do the talking.
Imagine a wall of spices containing all the colours,
flavours and fragrances of Asian cuisine. Imagine a
spice cabinet, two floors high, 24 metres long and
revealing every ingredient the chef will need to create
the distinguished Spice Market dishes. This spice
cabinet serves as the centrepiece of the restaurant
and as starting point for a great dining experience.
When you look up from the street through the
transparent restaurant facade, the cabinet is also
visible. The eclectic and intimate design is a result
of gold mesh sliding screens, brass screen lanterns,
jatoba timbo flooring and cosy booths, unique brass
‘birdcage‘ spiral stairs and 600 wok-lights.
The restaurant is a two-level space connected by the
grand iconic birdcage-staircase and a central void in
the mezzanine floor, to transport the energy from the
kitchen into the rest of the restaurant.
