The project site conditions unprecedented, in the 37 square meters of dining area there stands two poles that covers an area of 4 square meters, making the space more tense and narrow. After thinking, the original “obstruction” of the pillars transformed into a seat area. The idea comes from the bench in the park. The pillars symbolize the towering trees, the long public seats are wrapped around the tree, and becoming the dining table, people around the “tree” can enjoy cool meal, and from the pillar part it reduces the height of the bench. It becomes a chair again. As a result, it meanders around the bench at one go, becoming the main form of space.
There’s dramatic height differences in the original ceiling and the lowest part of the duct is only 2 meters high. Thus the designer introduced scaffold element to the project, combining with the ducts and making the empty ceiling interesting. It shows the layered form of a construction field. In addition, the scaffold replaced the walls in some place, enhancing the transparency of the space.
Wooden furniture, red scaffold and white flooring and walls together provide a sense of simple and clean. On one side, people could enjoy and relax in a park-like atmosphere. On the other side, the scaffold gives a busy feeling on the construction site. The two spaces contrast with each other, creating different ambience in the ordering space and dining space.
The use of scaffold reveals the popular and affordable image of rou jia mo. What interesting is that Xizhaoye is selling rou jia mo in the second highest building in Beijing, bringing this popular snack to a new height.
