Panorama Interior Architecture and Design step into the hospitality sector by introducing QTC Restaurant, Shenzhen, China.
October 16th, 2013
Pushing the boundaries of traditional Chinese restaurant design is Panorama’s revolutionised QTC dining concept crowned ‘Butterfly Garden’.
The triangular-shaped site constructed predominantly by glass and steel structure imposed a challenge of any standardised restaurant layout provision and high heat gain.
These special restraints subsequently were developed into design opportunities for Panorama and were used to set up a strong brand identity.
Key design elements include open dining areas with various seating patterns in booth, bench and table – and private VIP rooms scattered on the exterior.
In line with the chosen theme, a central curved white feature wall signifies the sense of movement of the flying butterfly and in turn breaks the rigidity of the triangular site providing multiple sight points.
Super-sized butterfly wings are suspended by translucent dividers to provide vividness to space. Triangular skylights in different sizes have been used to open up the false ceiling to bring in extra light during daytime dining.
Two-tone beige dining chairs have been alternately placed to subtly contrast the timber flooring which has been used to offset the white ceiling and walls.
Panorama has designed QTC to reflect a new era of trendy Chinese restaurant design.
