Being inspired by what might have been considered obsolete by the young generation, Ksoul decided to utilize vintage and extreme high-functional materials and coloration to remind the customers of the construction trend and social situation in the 90s. First and foremost, the most important factor is the overall structure of the project, window-panes are aligned separately as in the famous building at 42 Nguyen Hue street, Sai Gon, Viet Nam.


Going through the store space are grindstones and steptread tiles arranged elegantly – the two main materials used in old Saigon households. Also, traditional bricks are used to set up the bartender area, one of the small but special spot that Ksoul would like to contribute to the scheme of our designing.
This place would definitely give you a comfortable and satisfying touch thanks to the layout that Ksoul intended to integrate vintage and retrospective things with breakthrough and modern deliverables.


An example could be the green-coated walls which recall the old house vibes, accompanied by round-shaped inox led cases – which are painted orange that have demonstrated the interference of oldschool and newschool styles.


Indeed, it would be safe to say that Ksoul rarely is involved in project with traditional and vintage deliverables because it would tend to be outdated in such a modern society. However, once we commit to do it, we are ambitious to materialize the story and the core values that our customers would like to convey to Den Da lovers. Especially, this is the combination that marks the development based on the modernization and urbanization that Den Da has been pursuing throughout their storyline.
