restaurant in the forest,mortise and tenon
Kris Lin International Design
The project is located in Xi'an, close to Jinghe Wetland Park in the south. The large birch forest gives the project unique landscape resources. This mixed multi-function space is divided into two floors, the first floor is cafe, the second floor as the restaurant and art gallery space.We wanted to create a mood, a restaurant in the forest. It allows people to take a break from their daily lives and enter a relaxed environment.Integrated forest, deer and water those three elements into the design.
The grid system of indoor ceiling takes the intertwined canopy in the forest as the intention, abstracts the canopy group images in the forest into a tensile architectural structure, which has become the most expressive image characteristic of this case. The whole indoor space is neatly arranged like an artificial forest in the whole forest. We use the mortise and tenon joint technique to connect everything together. Mortise and tenon joint is a common used skill in Chinese traditional architecture, drew inspiration from the crystallization of the wisdom of our ancestors, it creates a visual art effect for space creation as well as completes the interpretation of traditional culture.
