The Thai design agency 'Hypothesis' recently unveiled a stunning new restaurant that is housed inside a formed warehouse. When working with an industrial space, it can be difficult to create a warm and inviting atmosphere. These designers managed to transform a dingy old warehouse into an upscale eatery through the use of natural elements.

'Vivarium' is a Thai-Japanese fusion restaurant located in Bangkok, Thailand. The unconventional eatery is housed inside a formed warehouse, which means the interior is largely industrial. However, the designers managed to upgrade the space by adding flowers, roots and tree branches to nearly every surface. The use of natural elements creates the illusion of a terrarium, while also making the space feel warm and inviting.

Vivarium demonstrates how designers can merge two different kinds of materials in order to create a space that is unique and comfortable.
