The project is located in Nanxincang, Beijing. The design not only conforms to the logic of contemporary era and future exploration, but also shows respect to the culture and core of Da Dong, a popular Chinese restaurant brand. The design team dug into the brand’s culture characterized by progress, culture, taste, art, openness, integration and science. Through the architectural space and sensory aesthetics, the team unfolded their cognition, understanding and narratives of Da Dong with a confident attitude. Light and shadows permeate structural gaps. The light and shadows move in the curved hallway space, breaking conventional sedate and dull spatial atmosphere, full of a sense of dynamics and curved beauty. The project adopts modern materials and design techniques to interpret the Chinese restaurant. Curved surfaces and shapes divide the space and create the basic form of the restaurant. Curved forms break the stereotype of conventional Chinese restaurants, thus generating a unique spatial experience. Black mirrored stone materials applied to the floor create a water-like effect. Abstract forms reflected on the water-like floor make people feel as if they are walking into a beautiful “landscape painting”. The design team aimed to create an advanced yet slow-paced process to enable people to enjoy a short yet special dining experience.
