Before working on this project, Mr. Xu has been thinking about the future development of restaurant, as well as new ideas of restaurant design. He wants to design a restaurant which gets rid of the stereotype and being innovative. In this case, Mr. Xu, as space magician, proves again there are new breakthroughs in blending nature into a restaurant.


For a long time, there is no breakthrough in field of restaurant design or even in the whole design industry. No innovation could be found in designs of different industries. It is the same with new restaurant designs, most of them are just about shaping or the arrangement of furniture, which are neither attractive nor have features that could touch people's heart. Designers have the responsibility and should play a leading role in improving the quality of future life and living environment.


Mr. Xu applies natural bamboo to the dining space creatively, thus combines healthy food with environment organically. Entering into the space, you will be shocked by the magical bamboo forest. You will feel peaceful and refreshing in this space with a breath of nature. 


Because the original building is an office building, whose nature is hard to be associated with restaurant. So tiles are used on the exterior facade from the 1st floor to the 4th floor to connect the whole building. Great "magnetic field" is generated in this way, which could leave deep impression to people. The whole building consists of 4 floors. The 1st floor is reception lobby and kitchen, the 2nd floor is banquet hall, the 3rd floor is the private rooms, and the 4th and 5th floor is social catering. Because there is a mezzanine above the 4th floor, the designer made the 4th and 5th floor as independent social dining area boldly.


Bamboo is the element that applied across the whole building and connects every floor. Two staircases are designed between the 4th and 5th floor in particular, which makes the space coherent vertically and allows more interaction. People in it will feel peaceful and contented. Materials used are simple and natural, such as: tiles, phyllostachys praecox, straw walls, plain cement, etc.


The whole space is interpreted based on the internationally advocated Eco-friendly concept. It presents a sense of transparent while being winding and has partitions; it is private but not depressed, which is very different from traditional space division. The creative bamboo-baskets-shaped dining area is the highlight of the design. The staircases and dining areas are all hidden in the bamboo baskets as if the whole restaurant is hidden in bamboo forest. The bamboo baskets could let in light layer-by-layer, making the restaurant more graceful, natural and simple, thus creates a space which returns to purity and simplicity.


산다오 레스토랑

Mr. Xu는 고정관념을 없애고 혁신적인 레스토랑을 디자인하고자 했다. 그는 식당 안에 자연적 요소를 끌어들이는 데에 새로운 돌파구가 있다는 것을 다시 한 번 증명했다. 오랫동안 레스토랑 디자인의 대부분이 가구의 모양이나 배치에 변화를 주는 것에 지나지 않았는데, 그는 대나무를 식사 공간에 적용시켜 음식과 공간환경을 유기적으로 결합시켰다. 공간 속으로 들어가면 마법의 대나무 숲에 충격을 받을 것이다. 자연의 숨결이 느껴지는 이 공간에서는 평화롭고 상쾌함을 느낄 수 있다. 


건물 전체를 통합하기 위해 1층부터 4층까지의 외부면에는 타일이 사용되었다. 1층은 로비와 주방, 2층은 연회장, 3층은 개인실, 4~5층은 공용식당이다. 사용된 재료는 타일, 필로스타키스, 짚 벽, 평탄한 시멘트 등 단순하고 자연스러운 것들이다. 전체 공간은 친환경적 개념을 바탕으로 구불구불하면서 투명한 느낌을 주고 칸막이를 한다.


창조적인 대나무통 모양의 식사공간이 디자인의 하이라이트다. 계단과 식당이 모두 대나무 속에 감춰져 있어 마치 온 식당이 대나무 숲 속에 감춰진 것 같다. 대나무는 식당을 더욱 우아하고 자연스러우며 소박하게 만들어 순수와 소박함으로 되돌아가는 공간을 만든다.
