叁上叁设计 | OPPO深圳湾“春笋”员工餐厅
LOFT中国感谢来自 深圳叁上叁设计顾问有限公司 的餐饮空间项目案例分享：
“For me, the best interior design should allow the dialogue between the space and nature. What I tried to do as approaching the project was to enable people to listen to the breeze, overlook the sea and interact with clouds in the space nearly 200 meters above the ground.”
In 2019, OPPO launched a new office in Shenzhen Bay Area, which is situated on the 392.5-meter-high China Resources Tower (also known as “Spring Bamboo”).
A staff canteen can not only present the image of the corporation, but only embody the brand’s soft power. OPPO entrusted Shenzhen Sanshangsan Design Consulting Co., Ltd., a studio once created canteens for many renowned Chinese brands such as Huawei and Vipshop, to conceive its new staff canteen.
以员工的应用场景为出发点 Starting from scenes where the staff use the canteen
Sanshangsan has been attaching great importance to studying on creation of scenes where corporate employees use canteens. Traditional staff canteens usually feature undifferentiated design in the interior space. However, Sanshangsan seeks for personalized designs, and works to incorporates companies’ spirit of caring into the staff canteen.
After spending a long time in observation and talking with OPPO’s employees, the designers summarized various utilization scenes of the canteen, and worked out corresponding design solutions. Moreover, they customized brand new types of tables for some special dining scenes, in order to better fit into demands.
将场地的景观优势最大化 Making the best of outdoor landscapes
With a round plane, the overall space is pillar-free. Nearly 200 meters above the ground, the space boasts a panoramic view of the sea, lake, park and golf court, etc.
To optimize visual experiences of the outside, the designers adopted design methods of Chinese classical gardens, including “borrowing scenery”, “opposite scenery (view in opposite place)” and “enframing scenery”. On the side that enjoys the best view towards the sea, they set various window-facing dining seats, which integrate indoor scenes with the sea in the distance.
In addition, on the area close to urban built landscape, some frames were arranged, so as to enframe iconic urban landscape outdoors.
Moreover, in the dining zone that is relatively far away from windows, the design team skillfully utilized the approach of “borrowing scenery”. The mirrors on walls reflect and introduce impressive outdoor views, which can be appreciated by the staff at any angle.
人流动线的高效规划 Efficient circulation routes
Improving the efficiency of catering services is a key issue. There are about 5,000 employees in OPPO’s Shenzhen Bay headquarters, while the canteen accommodate 1,145 people at the most and provides catering services with a duration of 1.5 hours, which means the average dining time for each employee is merely 20 minutes. Since the time that the employees get off work is the same, chaos and congestion would be caused if the circulation routes for queuing up, dispersing the crowd and collecting cutlery are not planned in a reasonable manner.
Based on site conditions, the designers carried out various trials on circulation routes, and finally decided to create a loop at the center of the space, with a diameter of 4.5 meters. Inside the loop are food stalls, while outside it are dining areas. The loop is separated and partitioned, so that the employees who are queuing for taking meals and those who are dining won’t disturb each other.
The entire space is divided into four sections, and each has an area for collecting used cutlery at the exit, which avoids the interweaving of dining circulations and cutlery collecting circulations and hence greatly improves the efficiency of the canteen.
团餐业态趋势引领 Leading the trend of group catering forms
Staff canteens belong to “group catering spaces”, which provide catering services for certain groups. Sanshangsan team has been working on the design of group catering spaces for years, and has witnessed greater importance that Chinese enterprises have been placing on staff canteens.
Many renowned companies take the lead in reforming their staff canteens, which is regarded as an important step to enhance corporate image. They actively absorb experience within the catering industry, introduce commercial services and competition modes, and entrust design and construction to professional teams. In this way, staff canteens are increasingly becoming embodiments of corporate image and culture.
