Project Name: Bian Dang
Location: Wolli Creek
Date Of Completion: August 2017
Project Type: Interior design
The traditional concept of street food in Asian culture brings a modern casualisation of the dining experience and provides a simplified dining concept to Sydney patrons. A unique feature is the four-grid design in the logo which reflects the traditional Chinese language characters which also provides inspiration for the interior’s minimalist design. Having a simple yet clean colour palette, the attention is drawn to the food that’s served. Many of Bian Dang’s dishes are a culinary mashup of traditional flavours and contemporary processes.
The contemporary design of Bian Dang’s counter is the main feature, with a pitched roof house silhouette is structured to highlight the kitchen and its visibility is seen from the three glazed shopfronts. Within the walls and columns of the restaurant, there are splashes of graffiti which presents a strong street vibe. One of the notable graffiti pieces is the Lucky Cat which in Chinese and Japanese culture is believed to bring good luck to the owner and every customer.
