Restaurant Design Finalist

Project Title:

The Chinese National

Project Location:

Jakarta, Indonesia

Design Practice Location:

Singapore, Singapore

A complex of four Chinese specialty venues in one, The Chinese National is a culinary destination that redefines a modern approach to Chinese culture and cuisine. The concept is based on the four great inventions of China and consists of Letterpress, a tea house by day and cocktail bar by night; Iron Needle, a dumpling and noodle shop; Black Powder Red, a Szechuan restaurant; and Paper Duck, a luxury Cantonese roast duck venue. The design of all venues shares a similar language, but much like the languages of China, each space takes on its own visual dialect.
