To introduce the Lebua Breeze dining concept to the European market, rather than focusing on particular formal architectural elements, we concentrated on the three key ingredients that embody Breeze: inspirational food, exceptional service and bold design. The new restaurant experience develops around the defining architectural moments, which mark a guest’s series of transformations as they discover a cavernous grotto, hidden below the busy streets of Frankfurt’s city center in the basement of the Steigenberger Hotel Frankfurter Hof. The space takes inspiration from nature: running water, layers of glowing blue, turquoise and teal, golden reflections of brass and bronze, the haptic and sensual qualities of timber and stone which link to the sea, the setting sun as well as a dark, deep night sky. Each stepping stone, from street level to restaurant, is considered part of a carefully crafted customer journey. Creating a truly immersive and memorable space imbued with a sense of drama, anticipation and surprise. It’s the perfect ambience for the most exclusive dining experience that peaks curiosities, welcomes and invigorates guests as they prepare for a culinary exploration unlike any other.
