SEVVA Restaurant

SEVVA Restaurant

Hong Kong

A bare rooftop with superb views is transformed into multiple dining environments, each with a distinct menu and character.

Design of dining rooms, lounge, tea room, and terraces for a restaurant perched atop Hong Kong’s landmark Prince’s Building.

We envisioned SEVVA as a miniature city within a city, a composition of distinct “neighborhoods”. Each one embodies the essence of one of SEVVA’s menus, thereby offering guests a panoply of experiences to choose from, much as any great city does.

Bank Side caters to Hong Kong’s business and power elite, with vistas of Norman Foster’s groundbreaking HSBC (Hong Kong Shanghai Banking Corporation) headquarters and the commercial district as backdrop. Harbour Side offers a more casual dining experience; warm tones of ivory, ebony, and buttercup yellow serve as counterpoint to Bank Side’s clean-lined Minimalism. A unique vaulted ceiling casts a soft, luminous glow over the room. Taste Bar transforms itself from a bento box bar at lunch time into an urbane cocktail lounge in the evening. A bold tropical palette, complete with faux rhinoceros horns and a lush vertical garden of aromatic maiden hair ferns from Belgium bring a whimsical touch of the exotic to this ultra-metropolitan setting. Cake Corner is a child’s dream made real. Confections morph into décor in this delirious chamber of glass-encased treats. Surrounding it all is a wrap-around terrace: surrounded by iconic skyscrapers, harbor, and mountains close enough to touch, one feels viscerally connected with the entire metropolis at once.
