Five star fusion restaurant gives it's Chinese roots a contemporary makeover
This is a design for a 5-star contemporary restaurant in Shenyang which serve western and eastern fusion delicacies.
The Main focus of the interior architecture would have to be the Front of the Restaurant, frosted by a huge glass curtain wall. The triple volume space and full height glass curtain wall allow us to use interior design to contribute to the total architecture of the building. Recessed alcoves with red light shades are placed in a random yet orderly formation with black granite strips of different thickness as the main cladding materials.
Every public zone has its own special focal points and conversational pieces to ensure, not only a gastronomic feast, but a visual feast for the diners! A Contemporary Chinese design, that draws back to its roots, without looking too 'ethical'. Prominent colours like auspicous red and imperial yellow are used whilst black and dark grey are utilized quite freely to contrast the pastel colors, as well as giving the space an up-market feel. Wood elements are also incorporated to neutralized the contrast.
