taste space unveils new restaurant and bar in bangkok

As Taahra is located in a residential area of ​​an old town, the Based in Bangkok designers have taken up the challenge of maintaining the intimacy of the restaurant while ensuring that natural light is abundant. As such, Taste Space incorporates frosted glass windows that maximize daylight exposure, maintain an exclusive environment for guests inside, and present a sophisticated street-front façade. Despite the somewhat dilapidated and unassuming location of the restaurant and bar, the designers draw a unique feature to the restaurant by placing a black log at the entrance. In a take on firewood and grill, this references the coal and charcoal imagery of the design concept. The prominent and elegant new facade has been painted a solid black, distinct from the multicolored buildings surrounding Taahra.

This bold appearance continues and is found throughout the interior of the restaurant. Furnishings and interior design have been carefully crafted by Taste Space to further evoke coal and charcoal imagery, using smooth wood and concrete materials to create a warm and comfortable ambience. While the first floor is mainly inspired by coal, the second floor is inspired by charcoal. Upon entering the restaurant, patrons are greeted with a live grill bar where the chef can be seen cooking up the delicacies during a live show, illuminated by the spotlights above. In a unique display, the terrazzo countertop is designed by Taste Space to mimic the distorted appearance of coal dust and flames. Designers further incorporate scattered tiles for flooring, arranging them in a mosaic-like pattern that resembles coal stock.

Due to planning restrictions, the architects were unable to demolish the original existing staircase. Thus, Taste Space disguises the old with a new minimalist spiral staircase, featuring soft, recessed lighting that serves as a connecting element between the bar and restaurant areas.
