FOC Sentosa Restaurant

Lagranja Design

Description Technical file

This transformation project in an Indonesian enclave situated next to the river Sentosa, in a convivial atmosphere of Mediterranean resonances, proposes an architecture of characteristics dominated by transparency and slenderness.
In late 2014 Nandu Jubany, a chef with one Michelin star, Jordi Noguera and the cocktail barman Dario Nocentini exported the spirit of Barcelona to Singapore with the FOC restaurant, which soon became an inescapable gastronomy space. Only a couple of years later, FOC expanded its roots to the festive coasts of Sentosa, on the shore of Palawan beach. The new FOC is the reinterpretation of a Mediterranean beach bar, combined with the style inherent to the place.
The project seeks to adapt to its natural setting, respecting in this quest the location of the existing trees and aiming for transparency, especially in the second floor, which is completely glazed.
The very slender structure of metallic pillars helps to achieve the effect of transparency and lightness. The roof overhangs all the spaces, generating shade on the exterior areas and the terrace.
The façade is covered in strips of two colours that recall a beach motif, and the built ensemble is divided into two spaces connected by a covered walkway, thus adapting to the shape of the terrain. Aluminium frames are used, combined with folding sliding elements to open up the interior space as much as possible and give continuity to the outdoor dining room towards the beach.
The building revolves around a small swimming pool that becomes the centrepiece of the outdoor area, especially for the cocktail bar and the lounge. Last but certainly not least, the graphic elements (designed by Xavier Mariscal) use typical motifs from the area.
