This restaurant is located in Taikooli, Shanghai. The concept for this project was to create a walk-in vineyard. The restaurant is composed of two floors. The first floor welcomes customers with an open dining space with a bar and a wine cellar. The second floor provides intimacy with two VIP rooms and the kitchen.
The interior design displays the wine production, from grape to wine. The wood sticks on the wall represent branches, and the colour led lighting represents the grapes. In the staircase, the wood sticks transform to become the wine cellar shelves gradually, displaying the bottle of wine.
A lighting system dimmers change the colour of the light according to the time of the day. So our grapes, colour-led lighting, change colour and intensity like a fine wine with time, to pink and dark red.
The overall atmosphere is wanted to be white, using light grey bricks. Each brick is adjusted with a unique pattern to create movement. Like a wind blowing on the wall and rotating bricks following the motion. Full height dark grey leather boards, forming strong contrast, are like a warm blanket in the space to warm our guests on the second floor. We can find the same leather on the furniture.
