Antique Chinese culture is presented in a modern style. Entrance is classic lattice pattern made in steel. Massive use of gold offers a modern palatial grandeur. The layout of dining rooms surrounding a wine cellar follows the old Siheyuan concept while interior of rooms is formed with Circle and Square symbolic of Sky and Earth. Decorations are a mix and match of ancient Cosmology of the 5 elements of gold, wood, water, fire, earth with cheerful matt fabric in floral and geometric patterns.

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
The Siheyuan layout is designed to offer high level of privacy for restaurant’s celebrity guests. Flexible panels are installed for partitioning interior of rooms for smaller gatherings. To sustain big seasonal temperature differences, wooden materials are minimized while stainless steel, fabric and marble stones are adopted as major materials. With special arrangement of colors and shapes, it offers a vivid visual gradient.

The site area is 767.5 sq.m

TAGS:

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
-

CHALLENGE:
Since the design consists of high privacy VIP rooms, each room is well-equipped with independent facilities. To build washroom facility in each room required a full scale re-construction of drainage system which was only possible after a lengthy approval process by the mall management and relevant governmental departments. Progress was further delayed by drastic weather conditions.
