Highsnobiety presents 'Potato Head,' a high-end restaurant located in the Sai Ying Pun district of Hong Kong.
Although many flock to Potato Head to experience its unparalleled cuisine for themselves, others attend to relax its its bar lounge, get a take-out coffee or peruse its expansive retail space. The building, which was once a preschool, was creatively transformed by a Japanese architect named Sou Fujimoto, who sought to deliver an extravagant and unifying design that also facilitates many uses.
The architect chose to maintain much of the building's preschool components in the design as well, supplying the high-end restaurant with a playful atmosphere and giving the exterior a sense of character that helps drive its business. The retail space of Potato Head allows it to host pop-up events as well, bringing in diverse consumers who then have easy access to the high-end restaurant and the other services it offers so that more profit is generated.
