Drinks are served on the large outdoor terrace until late in the evening. The rooftop is the ace in the hole of the new VUE Restaurant in Singapore, entirely surrounded on three sizes by full-height windows, and equipped with outdoor spaces. From the heights of the dock of Marina Bay, it offers a thrilling panorama ranging from the ArtScience Museum, with its petal-like structural form, to the incredible towers of Marina Bay Sands, topped by an enormous Transatlantic that seems to rest on the tips of the skyscrapers.
The fusion spirit of VUE Restaurant, which serves up French recipes with notes of northern Europe and Japan, blends with an interior design of global character, created by the studio CHIL Interior Design. The classic arrangement of the dining room, with a long, narrow layout, herringbone wood floors and vaulted ceilings like those of a cathedral, has been modernized in a series of contemporary design choices, like the copper plates covering the entire arcade, lit by a linear volume placed at the center.
Or the black frames that set the pace of the immense windows. The finishing also adds rhythm to the only ‘blank’ wall, developed through a sequence of niches with dark wood paneling, soft lighting and a long padded bench. Particular care has gone into the lighting design, developed by CHIL Interior Design with the collaboration of consultants, to add emphasis to the various spaces and to offer different scenarios at different times of day.
The décor by Bross brings an imprint of Made in Italy, refined elegance and sartorial flair. The comfortable chairs from the Break collection by Bross, designed by Enzo Berti, enliven the main room of the restaurant and the prize zone with the copper tones of leather – enhanced by slender vertical stitching – covering the back, while black stained wood sets the tone of the shell and the legs. A perfect combination with the tables arranged in two parallel rows, with legs and borders in brass and tops in black marble, or with the larger rectangular table of the private space, made to accommodate up to 12 guests.
