Following on from the success of the [“New Shanghai Chatswood Chase”:https://www.australiandesignreview.com/projects/16486-New-Shanghai-Chinese-Restaurant] restaurant, the new eatery in Charlestown is the rural sister to the urban environment of Chatswood. All finishes are tactile and earthy, with traditional Chinese details mixed with a contemporary aesthetic.
The bamboo pergola has a leafy graphic surround, while the rear of the space has a Shanghai city skyline backdrop to give a sense of depth and context. The entrance has a steel lattice pattern on top of sliding glass panels, with a leafy graphic print applied to the glass behind. All the furniture is custom made for the project in China.
