brunch with is a futuristic restaurant with nostalgic touch in suzhou, by MM CONSULATE

‘brunch with’ is an inspiring story told by a restaurant design developed by MM CONSULATE studio about a young entrepreneurial client who wanted to make a splash with her third venue, this time in suzhou. the multiplicity of colors is paired with intended functions here, such as crafting cocktails & coffee at the bar, gazing out through the lounge, laughing with friends in baking class, hosting a party in the private room, or sharing a dish with a loved one in the formal dining room.



guests of brunch with can explore one or all experiences during a single visit, losing their sense of time while sharing these joyful moments with friends and family. the spaces of the MM CONSULATE’s restaurant are shaped to reveal surprising moments at specific points along the central spine of the restaurant flanked by the bakery and kitchen.



each moment engages the patrons and encourages further exploration as they move through the restaurant’s 472 square-meters space. forms of colored glass, terrazzo, and stainless steel act as a filter between dream and reality, shifting the view from the streets of suzhou into a colorful, elevated, floating lounge room, perfect for picturesque moments. stainless steel colors and details give homage to the diners of 1950’s creating a beautiful juxtaposition, which the team calls ‘futuristic nostalgia’.
