Calypsoo restaurant and lounge aspires to be the jewel box featured for a new mega-city block development in Shanghai. The design is influenced by the contextual reference of the traditional form of the row house style of the nearby “Mao House”, and incorporates an angled roof and the structure is clad in laminated bamboo. The restaurant is a two-story building with the main dining and wine bar on the ground level, and lounge bar space on a covered roof terrace directly accessible from a grand stair. Bamboo knitting and panels with fire retardant treatment is the main focus of this project.
