El Celler de Can Roca

 

Acording to the Celler de Can Roca, the concept of the restaurant is best described as a triangle.

A triangle with three vertices —Joan, Josep and Jordi— which, in the most perfect harmony, delineate a scenario where emotions and sensations excite and fill the palate.

Their culinary research activities are also driven by a three-pronged approach: on the one hand there is tradition —the landscapes of memory—; on the other, an intellectual component —which brings us closer to the world of emotions—; and lastly, an academic element which, far from disregarding classical cooking techniques. evolves them and creates new ways to awaken customers’ taste memory: forgotten flavours and aromas that bring to mind moods and personal memories otherwise distant in time and space.

El Celler de Can Roca opened its doors in August 1986. The first dish Joan created, Sole with rosemary and garlic vinaigrette, was to be followed by over twenty years of evolution: new techniques and new concepts.

Honeycomb Restaurant

 

The Honeycomb Restaurant in Shenzhen, China was designed by Japan based Sako Architects.

The white surfaces of the large space undulate in plane, and form six bands of ‘pleats’ that become the boundary for each space. In section, they appear like six ‘honeycombs’. Over 1000 oval shaped holes have been opened on the surface, and a subtle continuity has been established between the two areas.

These holes bulge on the outer surface like empty pots, and enrich the space with an organic expression. Base on such manipulation of space, a hall with ceiling height of 9.2 is form at the outer side, and VIP rooms for private use at the inner side. The diameter, angle, and level vary for each of the 6 honeycombs. Based on such variations, hierarchies are established in terms of VIP room sizes, and ceiling height etc.

The inner side of the white surface is divided up to two levers, of which consist of large room and private rooms as well. A spiral staircase penetrates between the levels, and in the center, about twenty five thousands of acrylic balls hang from the 9.2 meters ceiling above. Drops of water dribble along the lines of acrylic balls, and glitter under the strong ceiling light. It looks like as if a waterfall is running down from the ceiling. This waterfall is an eye-catcher from the entrance and draws customers’ attention to the back of the restaurant.
