HOUSE OF MANDARIN
The facade of this oriental restaurant was created using a copper lattice instead of building a wall with wooden panels on the columns in between. The cement finished tile flooring is enhanced by an inlay of brass strips. The showstoppers here are the patina finished hanging bells inspired by the bells from the Chinese Qing dynasty. They also serve as hanging lights adding a mellow touch to the ambience.
The wall panel by the entrance has an etching of wood metal and glass while the wallpaper with its green and teal pattern, enlivens the walls, and is a perfect foil for the lacquered plum dining tables. One of the walls has a rustic off white texture and is adorned with large art installations made out of blue and white China plates against a gold backdrop. It’s a warm and exotic space with unconventional Chinese aesthetic elements.
