The French Window, Hong Kong

This high end French restaurant is a welcoming blend of nostalgia and modernity, where high quality home dining allows guests to eat in style, but still let down their guard. The refined olive palette creates a sense of tranquility and the scheme is decorative in a subtle, architectural way. Stealing the show and layering the space is the restaurant’s oversized motif, where hand-beaten wrought iron and textured glass meet in a series of modern screens inspired by antique French windows.

With Victoria Harbour laid out through double-height floor to ceiling windows, the main lounge has been designed to blend rather than compete. Rich carpeting, textured stone tiling and ornate wrought iron detailing contrast with pared down Gallic-inspired furniture.
