Garden Hotpot Restaurant


At the end of 2018, MUDA-Architects received the commission of Garden Hotpot Restaurant reconstruction. The site is located in Sansheng Township, a suburban

area of Chengdu with remarkable natural conditions and ecological resources. MUDA-Architects takes this opportunity to integrate hotpot culture with natural 

ecological environment, creating a dinning space that respects the original ecology and in line with modern consumption custom and pattern. 

Located in the hinterland of Sansheng Township, the site is hidden in eucalyptus woods surrounding a lotus pond. In order to generate a biophilic dinning space 

with comfortable dinning ambience, MUDA decides to eliminate the architectural scale by installing pillars and plates and neglecting solid walls to lightly conceal 

the building in the woods, which resembles the steam of hotpot diffusing into the air. The spatial structure allows the restaurant to merge into the environment 

and facilitates the conversation between visitors and nature.
