Slurp is a traditional Chinese restaurant in New York City that serves dishes from the Hunan district. New practise, the studio that designed the interiors, decided to make the space look like a giant package of noodles in the most formal format possible. A wooden arch can be seen from outside the restaurant, with its corners being filleted. It has the continuation of a maze and surely creates the illusion that the space is much bigger than it actually is. The door of the restaurant is all glass and for those sitting at the first table, it creates the feeling on sitting in front of a balcony that connects them to the street.
Let it be noted, that the chosen lighting “breaks” the monotony of the noodle-like geometry and bring several levels in the rooms, creating a much warmer atmosphere.
