2022 WIN Awards entry: WU Modern Chao Cuisine (Shenzhen) - AD Architecture

WU Modern Chao Cuisine (Shenzhen) by AD Architecture is an entry in the Restaurants and caf├ęs category of the 2022 WIN Awards

by Copy taken from 2022 entry 19 April 2022 2022

Located in Block E1 of OCT Tower in Shenzhen, the 88 sq m project is a modern Chaozhou cuisine restaurant that carries the mission of carrying forward Chaozhou cuisine. It was completed in July 2021 and has eight private dining rooms, a dining hall, a whiskey bar and a wine room, and provides innovated Chaozhou cuisine of high aesthetic value in a poetic architectural space.

The restaurant's dining hall is mainly finished with grey textured paint and wooden flooring, with an emphasis on the connection with outdoor greenery. Meanwhile, the metal ceiling structures highlight the sense of fashion and business and also create a sense of peaceful coziness.

The design of private dining rooms highlights a conversation with the surrounding environment. Its simple architectural language emphasizes comfort and focus as well as the interaction between people. The green and red paper decorations deliver the ancient color aesthetics that can be dated back to the Han dynasty of China.

The designers experimented with the forms of expressing handmade paint. The team mixed metal grains with grey decorative paint, which unexpectedly produced a concrete-like plain texture and also a glorious visual effect.

The wooden floor contrasts with the metal materials in a way that achieves the unity of softness and hardness. Cold and warm colors are alternated not only to induce the harmony of coolness and warmness, but also to integrate more elements such as temptation, humor and mystery into the space.
