Text description provided by the architects. The restaurant sits in the outskirts of Shanghai in the newly formed Disney town, with views from within over a large lake.

Occupying a concrete framed building the design seeks to occupy this banal framework; exposing slabs, columns and ductwork whilst shrouding the honest backdrop in certain areas with planes of plaster and ply.

A central white ceiling plane organises the dining space dividing between inward facing with restaurant views and outward with views towards the lake outside. The inner adopts a language of dark leather and dark tables offsetting against the white ceiling plane. Whilst the outward has deep red warm leather with carefully exposed and neatly finished ductwork above.

The white ceiling plane curves to wall at the far end of the restaurant space, with a gradient white paint that blends ply and plaster together.

A private dining room is fully enclosed with this method, with incisions in the form to create door and window openings that ignore the rigor of radial ribs that give the room form.

Lighting fixtures were developed especially for the project; a carefully balanced height adjustable pulley light; cast concrete counterweight, cast resin drop pendant with a brass cowl diffused COB LED within.
