Zhengzhou is an old city near the home of Shaolin Kung Fu. Like much of China, it is evolving from its historical roots into an fast-paced international hub with more young clientele demanding higher beverage standards and a hip cafe. Designers Alexis Landry & Casey McManemy were inspired by the kung fu ideas of balance, harmony, and movement. Exterior panels appear to gradually fan out of this corner location, catching the eye of the many pedestrians at this intersection. Interior sightlines allow customers to see nearly the entire store in one view. A multi-angled ceiling brings the customer around the space with shimmering coffers that highlight the Reserve Bar. The space ends with a restful but dynamic library lounge.
