Most of the coastal cities are like reefs on the seashore, which are constantly washed against by the cultural tide on the other side of the sea and eventually imprinted changes on themselves. While as a city also impacted by Shanghai culture and western trends, Xinhui in Jiangmen, is like a beach touched by waves, containing everything brought by the times and retaining its valuable self.
The designers believe that this special temperament should also be given to Peter House restaurant located here.
Peter House的命名让人仿佛瞬间穿越时空到剑桥Peter House学院，那些饱含历史的沧桑院墙和巨大的圆形拱窗，像凝固为实体的层叠记忆，承载着一代又一代学者过客的人生。以火焰炙烤出来的灰砖赋予外墙自带温润的质感和厚度，让这家餐厅以优雅的姿态融入这个街区。
The name, Peter House, seems to bring a time travel to Peter House college in Cambridge, where courtyard walls and huge circular arch windows with a sense of history are like years of solidified memories carrying the lives of generations of scholars and passers-by. A warm texture and thickness of the exterior walls made of fired grey bricks allow the restaurant to integrate gracefully into the neighborhood.
Under the arched eaves, glass doors and windows were designed to the greatest extent, and folding windows allow the restaurant to connect with the street. Some of the walls replaced with orange glass bricks and the addition of greenery keep the space transparent and vibrant. A large area of glass is designed to be the perfect stage for the magician “light and shadow” to perform kaleidoscopic wonderful performances over time.
Arch is also used in the design of the wide ring bar counter and wine cabinet whose flat and smooth metal surface is the evidence of the craftsmen’s superb technology, and its beautiful arc stretches to the top of the ceiling, just like the swaying golden skirt of a actress. A wide variety of fine wine is just like jewels set in it, and the bartender plays the role of a dressmaker selecting and changing inlaid jewels from time to time to make the “actress” the focus that cannot be ignored in the restaurant.
Along the bar counter, industrial style chandeliers hang in the air like scattered stars, leading visitors to the wine corridor and dining area. The wind is like undulating waves, which turns into sparkling sequins when poured into a wine glass. And the designers cut them out and decorate them on the carefully arranged traditional brick walls. Red brick and metal are the real protagonists of this floor, which represent the meeting of the past and the future, and the integration of tradition and avant-garde.
人潮如烟，二楼的挑空休息区，是观察烟波的最佳位置。特殊做工的金属饰面让空间低调且贵气，镜面天花在视觉上拓展了空间深度，而舒适的座位和灯光增加了整体的柔和感。酒柜设计，则是设计师致敬Carlo Scarpa的名作Brion Family Cemetery时印象最深的设计符号——双环，设计师致敬远逝的时光并希望在此它能展现出新的寓意。
The crowd is like smoke, and the rest area open to below on the second floor is the best place to observe the smoke.The metal finish with a special process makes the space low-key and noble, and the mirrored ceiling visually expands the depth of the space, while the comfortable seats and lights increase the overall softness. The design of the wine cabinet is to pay tribute to the most impressive double-ring design symbol when the designer appreciated the masterpiece Brion family cemetery by Carlo Scarpa, with a tribute to the past time and a hope of showing a new meaning here.
As time creates a city, “Peter House Restaurant” also shaped by time does not need to pursue the neon. Tradition and fashion intersect like a double-ring, preserving the true self in the rapid change.
Because we are the trend.
