Nanjing Fullshare Restaurant Extension
- EXH architecture and design company
Nanjing Fullshare Restaurant is located in Nanjing University of Chinese Medicine.
The Client wanted to keep Min-Qing Style Building and renovate the interior into a modern and fashionable space, so that clients and partners can relax, have dinner or drink tea in this environmentally friendly place.
We tore down the existing handrail and platform outside, and built a winter garden in order to incorporate the space into the natural surroundings while enjoying the comfortable interior space. The dining area connects to the outside landscape, people can drink tea, play cards and have afternoon tea. All activities bathe in the sunlight.
To lift ceiling of the dining area, we used a wooden grid system to create a pinnacle. Sunlight falls through the grid, not only inducing a mild and cozy feeling, but also decreasing the sense of oppression. From the winter garden to dining and service areas, light and shade cascade the various materials. Beige natural stone compliment the rustic brick, the primitive ebony and contemporary white walls. A Mix and match of multiple materials make the traditional style and tone of the buildings origin, integrate with a more modern design philosophy.
