Explore the seamless integration of culture and nature in Chengdu’s Garden Hotpot, a unique restaurant crafted by MUDA Architects. Nestled within an enchanting eucalyptus forest and encircled by a lotus pond, this extraordinary space blurs the boundaries between interior and exterior, offering a dining experience immersed in nature.
Garden Hotpot challenges conventional restaurant design, deviating from the typical images of carefully planned interiors. Drawing inspiration from the fresh air dining concept, this project embraces a new direction, reminiscent of the architectural brilliance seen in SANAA’s famous buildings. The roof’s curved design elegantly mirrors the organic shape of a nearby lake, eliminating traditional visual barriers.
MUDA Architects prioritized landscape preservation during the design phase, manually mapping the terrain to seamlessly integrate the restaurant with its surroundings. The lightweight roof, seemingly floating on “growth” thin metal columns, harmonizes effortlessly with the forest. The flooring, crafted from wood, complements the galvanized steel sheet roof coated with fluorocarbon paint.
Immerse yourself in the unique blend of architecture and nature at Garden Hotpot, where MUDA Architects have crafted a dining experience that transcends traditional boundaries. Witness the organic harmony between the restaurant and its surroundings, and savor a culinary journey amidst the beauty of Chengdu’s eucalyptus forest.
