Victor Hugo once was passing through the walls of Notre Dame and came across the word ‘ANArKH’. As he found this scribble which has meant ‘fate’ in ancient Greek, he felt the existence as of a small human being in an irresistible fateful situation in life. This was how his masterpiece ‘Notre Dame de Paris’ has all started, which he mentioned this in his preface as well. This project also started like a fate, which the site had a unique situation of residing right in the middle of a restricted development area. It has been critical for the team of Eccentric Design Lab of Hanyang University and Studio Eccentric to take this situation as an advantage point in the space to allow people to experience nature in various ways. 
The bar offers as a place for specialty coffee at day time and as an alcoholic drink bar during the night. Small spaces have been considered allowing for intimate conversations. Circular pods, each allowing for four to six people, have been scattered throughout the hall, filling the rest of the empty spaces in between as greenery garden. Even though each divided circular pod has been primarily planned for group privacy, the louvers of the pods allow the customers to feel less constrained and act as a device to allow to enjoy adjacent garden by each area.
