DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Aranya Cafeteria 6

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Restaurant

INSPIRATION:
This project is located at the underground space of a pet hotel. Hence, a restaurant for customers with their beloved pets became the main inspiration. There are multiple concrete walls left in the original underground space, and electrical equipments from above pet hotel has completely covered the ceiling. These elements brought the space a harsh and rustic appearance, reminding people of the cold industrialization. YSPACE wishes to expose these original elements, and treat this sense of brutalism and industrialization as a main concept of the interior finishing.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
Aranya Cafeteria 6 mainly responded to the special light conditions of an underground space and the existed concrete walls. Daylight can penetrate into the underground restaurant through 7 light patios with green landscape placed in, to create an ecological and natural atmosphere. Undressed concrete walls, log materials, along with green landscape, make the space in a natural and brutal way. To echo with the pet hotel upstairs, storage space has been specially marked off for pets keeping at the entrance, accompanied with humanized vending machine that sells pet snacks and pet-used water dispenser, to be easy to use for customers with pets.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
Influenced by COVID-19, we took more care of meal hygiene and food safety. Therefore, the design team set two hand-washing area at each entrance to Cafeteria 6. One of the hand-washing area connected to lifts of Quanshe hotel is closed to the toilet, which is distant to the one by the escalator. In this case, two hand-washing area can effectively avoid the chaos circulation during the rush hours.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The project started in December 2020 and finished in June 2021. Located in Aranya seaside resort community, Qinhuangdao, China.

FITS BEST INTO CATEGORY:
Interior Space and Exhibition Design

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
The lighting of Cafeteria 6 combines warm and cool lighting source, as proper lighting not only helps shape the atmosphere, but also has positive impacts to people moods. Primary circulation lighting applied 4000k spotlight in cool tone on rail to echo with the steel pipes and exposed air-conditioner boxes on the ceiling, highlighting the cleanness and coolness of the concrete walls. While the decoration lighting and key lighting for the dinning tables utilized 3500k warm light to visually make people focus on objects in short distance, such as delicious food on the table and natural beauty of people sitting opposite.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
The interior area of Cafeteria 6 is 2833sqm, the kitchen area is 617sqm, the pick-up area is 150sqm, the service area is 210sqm, and others are dining area for customers. YSPACE utilized the area that has most columns and irregular corners as the kitchen, while the service area spreading to all direction around the whole space. Moreover, the wider space in the middle where lightwells located is designated as customers activity space.

TAGS:
Pet, Brutalism, Underground Restaurant, Concrete, Wood, Lightwell

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
In-depth research has been conducted on the texture of materials and the psychological effects caused by lighting on people. Great efforts has been put on matching the brutal concrete walls with other materials and elements to create a stronger contrast.The design team decided to use logged ash wood with comfortable tactility as the main material of furniture, to warm up the interior environment. Cafeteria 6 has been shaped to a creative dining space with cleanness and coziness, by showing people strong contrast between vision and tactility.

CHALLENGE:
1. Under the circumstance that natural daylighting is insufficient, how to realize the best lighting condition for dining incorporate artificial lighting with the limited natural daylight? 2. How to make the excessive inclined wall existed in the original underground space integrated into the restaurant? 3. In what way does the rough concrete of the building combine with the delicate spatial elements?
