Emerging out of the sustainability movement, this Taiwan restaurant is setting a new standard for environmentally conscious design

Swept in 6,000 square meters of greenery in Kaohsiung, Taiwan is  Tan Zuo Ma Li, a Japanese grill chain restaurant that is altering the dining experience by going green.  Now, this eco-conscious grill goes beyond the typical dining room and into a sustainable oasis due to its extensive landscaping and design.

Designated as the Green Isle, Tan Zuo Ma Li features 250 trees on the property, in addition to a 120-meter pool. Not only do the trees reduce carbon emissions, but the pool also acts as a cooling microclimate against the heat. This ventilated design lowers the temperature by two degrees at Tan Zuo Ma Li in comparison to that of the city, creating a cooler climate for guests to enjoy.
