Duyong, a restaurant designed by zlgdesign [susanne zeidler and huat lim] created from tradition, albeit reference to the art of making boats, nearly lost through the ages can be seen here in Kuala Terengganu, in Pulau Duyong. The simple geometry of a arched structure assembled to represent and echo the forms of a malay boat gives this interior its essential meaning and presence. We added the screens which are spary painted in white, also inspired from the boat culture of the fishermen, each member of the structure resembling the ribbed and “bone” of the structure of the keel of the boat.
