Top chef Jan Hartwig's Munich restaurant needed to be bright and inviting, while also offering private areas for guests. This was achieved through a room within a room. The inserted cubes act as a kind of passe-partout, which can also be read from the outside through reduced window openings. This creates a relationship to the outside without exposing itself. The reduced interior has lime-rendered walls with windows and doors framed in Douglas fir. The eye is drawn to a grid ceiling that seems to float deep in the room through a circumferential light joint. In the evening, light from the individual cassettes falls on the tables of charred oak - like an offstage spotlight in a theater production. Transparent textile curtains reinforce this effect. They separate the public spaces from private separées and deliberately do not reach the floor to maintain a spatial relationship to the separées.
