The Tang Palace Restaurant is designed by Feichang Jianzhu Studio which is based in Jianggan District, Hangzhou, China. , precisely on the top of a superstore in the new-town area of Hangzhou. The top of this superstore is about 9 meters, so in this restaurant you can see the beautiful view in the south side of this restaurant, how amazing! The main material is bamboo board made from strong China Bamboo which is very famous to create bamboo art. With this bamboo decoration of this restaurant, you can feel the combined theme of both conventional and modernity.Brilliant! This restaurant project was built in 2010 which covers an area for about 2.460 sq m.
To take the advantage of the height of this restaurant which 9 meters high from the ground, several private rooms are hanged from the roof; this is located on the main hall. This idea is to create the new atmosphere between both the upper and the lower level of this restaurant, also for enriching the visual enjoyment for the visitor. The original building of this restaurant has a core column and some semi-oval blocks that essentially disorganized the space. There for the designer of this restaurant wants to reform the space with a large transparent-out ceiling which is created from interweaves thin bamboo boards. And enlarge from the wall along to the ceiling. Within the main hall, a dramatic visual expression is created by the waved ceiling itself. The hollowed-out bamboo net maintains the original height of this restaurant and thus creates the interactive relation between both upper levels and lower levels. The core column of this restaurant is wrapped with the light-transmitting bamboo boards to form a light-box. It transforms the previously heavy concrete block into a light and lively focus object.
The theme of bamboo also found in the entrance of the hall. The wall of it is covered by the bamboo material that follows the original outline of the wall. It turning the entrance into a wavy surface. As a result, the surface echoes the hall ceiling as well as performs a guiding function for customers.
