A frame of aged steel boldly demarcates the kiosk within an equally rectilinear lobby, setting distinct elevations facing each entry of the space. Within the frame blackened steel, micro-cement rendering, glass bricks and splashes of brass are reminiscent of the Australian cafe aesthetic that the FINEPRINT brand famously brings to Hong Kong.

A landscape of bespoke furniture, providing a range of seating modes is distributed through the lobby providing a contemporary layer, helping to create a modern setting. At the center of this landscape is a sculpture by Chu Hon Sun called “Mankind”, commissioned in 1989 and pre-existing in the lobby site. The kiosk and furniture, set against the lobby and contemporary sculpture form a comfortable and approachable dining experience.
