Join us on a stunning culinary journey, where past and present meet in impeccable new style; a luxurious oasis where superb food is complemented by a carefully curated selection of contemporary artworks.
Inspired by its tranquil sea views, the design concept of NUVA is to blend in gentle sea breeze and beautiful clouds into symbolic elements, mirroring the natural splendour to poetry elegance and artisanal ambience. The remarkable décor won NUVA the Gold Award in the Restaurant category at the Asia Pacific Interior Design Awards for Elite 2019/2020.
NUVA is inspired from the word Nubivagant, which originated from Latin words “nubes” (cloud) & “vagant” (wandering) to mean wandering in the clouds.
More meticulous details are reflected in NUVA’s elegant logo. Inspired by a traditional Chinese knot, which is an age-old symbol of joy and good fortune in Chinese culture, the logo embodies the restaurant’s Chinese name (澐．NUVA) while also representing the timeless beauty of waves and clouds.
With a spectacle view, artisanal cuisine and beautiful moments, dining at NUVA is sure to be a breath-taking experience.
NUVA’s inaugural exhibition is held in collaboration with Hong Kong’s Red Chamber Gallery and renowned artist Peter Yuill.
Peter specially created three spectacular paintings for NUVA, namely “Stranger in a Strange Land”, “Cymbaline” and “Unity”. Each of these dramatic artworks perfectly embodies the elegance of NUVA, while also expressing its contemporary personality and meticulous attention to detail.
Having grown up in Canada, Peter has always been surrounded by wilderness, and feels a deep connection to nature and the cosmos. This profundity is reflected in his artworks, which embrace geometry and lines to present the eternal balance between black and white, dark and light, yin and yang. Peter draws every angle, arc and node by hand without the aid of any computer software or compass, making his artworks objects of exceptional craftsmanship and beauty that are highly prized by collectors.
Peter was born in Ottawa, Canada, in 1984. He graduated from Sheridan College in Toronto with a Bachelor of Arts in Illustration in 2009. A winner of the American Illustration 27 Chosen Award, his clients include five-star hotels, luxury shopping malls and iconic office buildings. Peter has launched numerous solo exhibitions, and his work is now widely sought-after by art lovers.
