In Nanjing Dragon Teppanyaki Restaurant, the designer enhances the restaurant’s style with simple touches, emphasizing restraint and balance, so that the environment retreats to the background, leaving the stage to people and food. A sense of tranquility underlines the energy and comfort brought by food, in which the guests fully immerse themselves, inviting its guests to a new experience where design interacts with the five senses in a stylish dark ambiance.

The pure material and color of the large blocks in the porch set a cool, dark tone for the restaurant. Embracing a philosophy of minimalism and deconstruction, the facades introduce elements of framing, scenography, and composition, all distinguished by the measured connection between internal and external spaces.

The main circulation routes cross with each other in a well-organized manner, with the functional areas nicely distributed around them, ensuring an effective separation of the flows in the kitchen and the dining area. The optical ends of the circulation routes join the focal point in a classical Chinese way, bringing emotional memories through familiar aesthetic concepts.

The layout is based on individual walls, circulation routes, operating and dining areas, etc., creating an all-around immersive experience from multiple dimensions including forms, views, and touch. The wrap-around layout fully respects the scale of movement and the needs of different scenes. Free from over-design, it is dedicated to a more timely and convenient response to guests. With a sliding door, the dining area can be a completely open space or divided as needed, ensuring privacy without compromising the openness of the space.

The private room is surrounded by charcoal wood, with glass installed on the bottom of the walls to enhance the connection between the room and the open dining area, and to create an impression of breathability. The interplay of high and low furnishings and the layering of light and dark shades give a dynamic rhythm that is subtle yet effective.

The bathroom also follows the principle of minimalism, representing materials, proportions, and order. The quality and layers of the coarse texture and smooth surfaces are further enhanced by the touch of light.
