In order to complete the eclectic design, starting from the entering space, while the spirit of the history stylized by combining with all the details of the place, the sky-blue traditional floor tiles had been floored randomly by conceptualizing them with a modern manner.

Ventilating ducts and electric platforms were painted as sky-blue used in other spaces in order to create a combination.

In order to make the traditional view modernized and the asymmetrically distributed woodworks have the same sense Caglayan Architects used shades of grey. A magnificent lighting located in the center of the restaurant, is placed as the display of the harmony that is consisted of modern and traditional harmony and the identity of the restaurant.
