1.0 About the project


The search for taste


Life is passing like a dream which is worth a thousand searches......


One of the great pleasures in life is the search for novelty. It can be a landscape that has been reached over thousands of miles, or perhaps a beautiful object discovered with much effort. But the greatest of all remains the temptation of gourmet food, for that one bite of sensation hitting the palate, no one can resist but beam with excitement. There goes the saying: “Live for love and love for food". It shows that one may stumble upon gourmet food, just like love, by chance rather than by choice.


 “19 Carat”


The Diamond Food court on B1 level is inspired by the concept of “The search for taste of 19 Carat”,as the Chinese pronunciation for “19” is the same as "食酒", meaning “dine and wine”. “Carat" is the unit of measurement for the weight of diamond, representing both the highest grade of food and the spatial identity. Like a hidden treasure of food in a diamond cave, the space features a large orange-coloured "diamond" ceiling and a glittering collection of hundreds of cuisines. Sizzling food in this welcoming ambience draws in joyful men and women for a feast.


2.0 Design challenge


The challenge for the designer was to attract a large number of customer traffic to the basement floor!


3.0 Unique features


The designer's inspiration came from the concept of “The search for taste of 19 Carat”, which conveys the idea to ‘live for love and love for food”. The ceiling is covered with a mesh of orange 'diamonds' that stimulate the taste buds, making one feel like being in a culinary 'treasure trove’ that awaits exploring, discovery and sharing. It is a place for loved ones to meet, friends to gather and families to celebrate.


There are three ways to enter the Diamond Food court: sightseeing lift, atrium staircase and direct access from the metro station


The sightseeing lift will get you there as quickly as possible;


Take the staircase at the atrium golden castle on the ground floor down to the basement level to reach the Diamond Food court. It is like walking into a small square under the shade of a tree, completely open and welcoming. Sitting areas communicate the concept of "We eat", a place to share food and socialise with loved ones, family and friends.


The escalator ride from metro station into the Diamond Food court is like a journey of discovering a 'culinary treasure', guided by a network of orange-coloured diamonds.


The entire Diamond Food court is covered by a recyclable orange-coloured 'diamond' ceiling. A wide variety of shops come together to stir up a good appetite in this lively atmosphere. It also conveys the 'eco-chic’ concept that advocates environmental protection and conservation.


Raise awareness of environmental protection and resource conservation. Guide people to explore,discover and share with their loved ones!
