Hong Kong – Designed by Aedas Interiors Executive Principal Simon Thompson and Associate Director Ji An, Yì Restaurant by Jereme Leung was crowned Best Hospitality Building Project at the 2020/2021 LEAF Awards.

Adapted from the Chinese creation myth, Yì by Jereme Leung depicts the creation of Heaven and Earth by the god Pangu. The restaurant celebrates the concept of family roots and values passed onto future generations through storytelling. The journey begins as guests pass through a stunning floral tunnel at the entrance and enter the dining hall in a garden setting. A refined yet humble palette of natural materials is applied to bring the earth concept to life. The plaster ceiling sculptures, moon gate and custom modern chinoiserie artworks, make for a coherent narrative of nature. By reinterpreting tradition in a modern, progressive way, a hidden world is created within the historical landmark of Raffles Hotel Singapore.
