In the same fashion, SKP Xian represents the monumental culture of ancient Xian and will last, just as a book of stone, as well as activating the fashion vibe of Xian. While working with Dingdingxiang, I have enjoyed 20 years of history in Beijing, including traditional food and a trendy environment philosophy. The food itself is vintage and to make a similar contrast, I have decided to design the space in contemporary way.
For ten years, I have been working with Dingdingxiang as design consultant.As we speak, we have the opportunity to work again together. This collaboration creates a very positive feeling regarding the whole design process. It feels like meeting an old friend while working on a project involving renovation that stimulates us.We had significantly grown during a decade and each embarked in mind-opening journeys simultaneously.
Before the kickoff process, our client required us to update the“GLASS BALL” used to be in the former Restaurant.The concept is to create a conflict between the contemporary and vintage , which is a thread connecting. The past, the present days and the future. Based on the requirement ,we had put the Glassball on the Entrance Bar area. It is thought to bring luck and fortune while customers come and see the Glassball.
The semi open kitchen is a composite experience of five senses (sight, hearing, smelling, tasting and feeling. This combination brings customers up to a feeling of aesthetic，The kitchen is not only a food making process. It is also a “show” for the creation of delicious food. In addition, there are various details over the chef demonstration.We incorporated many elements and followed up the government specification during the process of design, rather than only considering the aesthetic and expression of feelings.
The restaurant is on the 6th Floor of SKP. There is an ice rink separated by a glass curtain wall. In order to save the unique scenery, we included the compartment session in the center of the hall. Besides the Box session, we benefited of the metal shelf to separate the hall. The hall is divided into a relaxed area and an open space. Therefore, a reasonable and pleasant flow was created spontaneously .
路德维希·密斯·凡德罗提出的:”Less is more。我一直很欣赏这句话，室内空间很多时候很容易被“装饰”了，而不是被“设计”，设计是需要取舍，不能为了博眼球而一味去做很多无功能的“装饰细节’,所以在选材时候，我们全空间只用了三种材质：水磨石、艺术玻璃、玫瑰金。这种”少“与简洁”不是简单得像白纸一张，让你觉得空洞无物，根本就没有设计。而是让每个来就餐的客户很舒服自在，不会为过度的环境装饰而分心，坐在餐桌前静静聆听火锅煮食物时的”咕嘟’声，闻着食物的香味……,等待食物出锅时的幸福感……，将食物送入口中味蕾的那种满足感，这一切的体验都是结合环境的空间、灯光、材质，合奏出来的无言“音乐”所起的作用。
I have always admired Mies Van der Rohe’s : “LESS IS MORE “. The indoor space is easily to be over decorated rather than design the space. The design itself is organized. It is ridiculous to draw your eyes to make too much decorations.We have selected only 3 materials: Grindstone, art glass and Rose gold.The combination of these simple materials are not shallow.The purpose of the design is to ease the customers while they are sitting in the restaurant, listening to the boiling sound of hotpot, smelling the fragrance of the food. The satisfying of tastebuds comes while you put food into your mouth .The integrated experience is made up of the space, the lights and the materials which all together operate a beautiful music.
Some customers commented on the Dazhongdianping that they have a feeling of staying at the VALENTINO Boutique at the restaurant. However, the graceful space also offers customers elegant vibes, which are fused and influenced by these two elements –people and environment.
