Shangri-La Chengdu Café Z
成都香格里拉大酒店 CAFÉ Z

Chengdu, China中国 成都 Restaurant酒店餐厅 330 Seats330 座位 Interior Design室内设计 2007-2009

The concept of a world café that offers guests and the food-loving Chengdu population a window to other cuisines is expressed through the design of a food street. Each zone of the restaurant is designed around a particular cultural experience.

Café Z, an all-day dining open kitchen restaurant, serves 593 guest rooms as well as users of 26 service apartments in a complex attached to the hotel. It draws the local population in Chengdu because of the added variety to the existing food culture offerings to Chengdu that is neither Sichuan in nature nor readily available.

An Arabic souk at the entrance offers a retail experience coupled with the rich aroma of Arabic coffee, just before one arrives in a section serving Middle Eastern and South Mediterranean cuisine. The show kitchen is organised around an Arabic oven out of which come fresh breads accompanied by mezze prepared on the spot. Progressing on, one side of the street immerses the guest in sushi and raw foods, while in stark contrast on the other side, South American Churrascaria offers hearty roasts. Subsequent zones present Chinese cuisine in the form of dim sum stations from various parts of China, a noodle station of noodles from all over world, and an international array of dessert.

The purpose of the design was to elevate fresh produce, ingredients and food offerings to the level of design elements through engaging presentation. With the physical design subservient to the food displays, the food rather than furnishings becomes the focus for guests.

通过设计一条每个区域都以特定的文化体验为主题的美食街,我们向住客和热爱饮食的成都市民推介环球咖啡厅的概念,并提供一次过品尝各国佳肴的机会。

全天营业的Café Z是一家设有开放式厨房的餐厅,为酒店593间客房的住客和综合大楼的26间服务式公寓的住户提供餐饮服务。餐厅吸引到当地居民光顾,因为它为成都现有的餐饮种类增添了非来自四川的罕见选择。

在进入中东和南地中海美食区前,宾客在入口处的阿拉伯集市就可享受购物乐趣,并感受阿拉伯咖啡的浓郁香气。开放式厨房以阿拉伯式烤炉为中心,提供新鲜的面包和现场制作的风味小吃。当宾客继续探索餐厅,就可享用在美食街一旁的日本寿司和生食,以及另一旁风味截然不同的传统南美烤肉。随之而来的是由全国各地风味点心柜台组成的中国美食区,提供全球各国面食的摊档和国际甜点总汇。

我们的设计目的是通过引人注目、美轮美奂的陈列方式,将鲜活农产品、食材和食品提升为设计元素,让展览出来的食物比实物的设计更令人动心,使宾客的焦点落在食物而不是在装潢摆设之上。
