DIN TAI FUNG Dumpling Restaurant by StudioMKZ, Sydney – Australia

November 11th, 2016 by retail design blog

DIN TAI FUNG Dumpling Restaurant is located on Level 2 with the new Broadway Re-developement. Having such a promenant brand worldwide, Din Tai Fung is located on a corner site- having to sit right at the entry to the dining precinct.

Dark stained plywood weave covers the entire restaurant facade- replicating the ever so famous bamboo steamers of Din Tai Fung. Simple, yet giving the power of architectural form, the facade holds a strong presence within the precinct. Within the weaved facade, open spaces were created to visually communicate with its patrons.

The endless hissing and churning of steam from the bamboo steamers played a strong theatrical role within the design. The design pallet was to play with strong contrasting material and form. Dark stained Plywood, raw black steel, rear illuminated red acrylic and deep emerald green tiles- amalgamated to form the next generation of food retail.
