Wandering in the complex, fast-paced urban life, we are often eager to escape the usual noise, calm down to explore the city’s basic context, find those lost memories and home flavor. The meaning of dumplings to the public is not only food, the joy and admiration of the moment when they enter the mouth. It is a lifelong symbol engraved on the soul, and it is also a comfort, a cure, and a load of many emotions.”Up Up Dumpling” is a new restaurant brand which is mainly engaged in steamed dumplings. The project is located in Chongning Road, a famous street in Wuxi. The designers adopt a minimal spatial form, coupled with exquisite aesthetic presentation, in a warm and fashionable style, break the inherent brand imprint of traditional delicacies, and then create a unique dining environment, trying to effectively separate from the ordinary reality.The facade of the door head is concise without losing details, and the structure is clear and concise. Red and white color as the keynote throughout the interior and exterior, extracted from the main product of this store – steamed shrimp dumplings. It not only deepens the consumer’s impression of raw materials, but also makes people feel the warm atmosphere of interweaving enthusiasm and vitality of the whole space.

Pushing the door in, the internal space as the continuation of the external style, is transparent and delicate. On the basis of fully understanding the brand spirit, the traditional space model has been broken. Different rhythms of perceptual space progressive layer by layer, pure geometric shape and simple decoration of their own rules, people feel both low-key and meaningful.

In terms of spatial layout, the designers distinguish different functional areas by different materials and colors. The sales, back kitchen operations and guest functions are mixed, kneaded and reorganized to avoid the visual depression caused by the use of physical partitions in small spaces. Long-shaped high tables, window-facing bars and scattered by the wall, ingeniously derive a variety of walking lines and dining forms, the sense of spatial hierarchy and comfort inadvertently.

The counter area is designed with a very striking exterior. The open architecture allows people to see the flow of steamed dumplings from making to eating from all angles in the room. The laminates and cabinets above the mesa are tied and fixed by stainless steel pipes, which appear to be suspended in the air from a distance and produce different visual effects. The smooth mirror stainless steel roof not only strengthens and stabilizes the whole structure, but also undertakes the role of the spotlight trough.

In material selection, terrazzo, latex paint, iron plate and stainless steel are mainly used. Harmonious and natural collocation, not bright and dazzling, not losing luster, emphasizing the harmony and different innovative thinking of modern young people, is just like dumplings, inclusive and inclusive. In the contrast of rigidity and softness, cold and warmth, the combination of hard gray terrazzo and clear-cut chandelier spreads the sense of simple luxury in the relaxed and elegant space.
