Brut is a tiny fine dining restaurant and natural wine bar serving dishes defined by philosophy of authenticity, sustainability and creativity. Brut’s flavors come from a mix of Hong Kong, French and Spanish cultural influences - a fusion perfectly representative of Hong Kong's multiculturalism.
Designed in Daniel Kamp’s signature aesthetic, every detail of the restaurant was custom crafted to create an atmosphere that answers the complex brief of 'at once luxurious and authentic, local and international, intimate and contemporary, raw and sophisticated'.
Furniture, lighting and menu details were designed bespoke and crafted in walnut, brass, suede and green marble.
Concrete walls with scribbled instructions for the cladding of the previous occupants were left exposed to help connect the restaurant with it’s historical and cultural context.
An abstract neon ‘sign’ - used not as a communication tool but for its lighting qualities alone - was crafted by a local Sifu to mark the entrance to the kitchen.
Custom decorative Ceramics were commissioned using southern Chinese glazing techniques combined with modern forms to fit just as comfortably into European context as an Asian one.
Brut’s exterior is designed to nestle quietly and confidently into its context at the edge of the emerging restaurant district of Sai Ying Pun. A custom door handle, made from wood salvaged form Hong Kong harbor, offers a warm, textural welcome.
