An Inside Look at Faye and Summer Restaurant in Suwon

Faye and Summer is a hotel restaurant situated on the 2nd floor of Alex 72 Hotel in Suwon, South Korea. The interior and brand identity was designed by Seoul-based studio Joongho Choi.

“The space is divided into three main areas. The first area is a dining hall where the natural lighting pours through tall glass windows. The dining hall is located next to the entrance so that it can maximize the first impression and atmosphere of the space with bright sunlight. Materials, colors and finishes have been chosen precisely to express a modern, but comfortable, environment where people can relax and enjoy their brunch and drinks. The next area is a second dining hall located one level higher, providing a warm environment. A comfortable and natural atmosphere can be found by placing wooden furniture, flowers, and plants in various ways around the area. The contrast between these two dining halls is the main interior concept of the venue. The third area is a private space for group guests,” said Joongho Choi, creative director of a studio
