Hot New Restaurant Designs From Hong Kong to Mexico City

Designers around the globe serve up clever concepts.

1. Firm: YOD Studio of Commercial Design.

Project: Shade Burger.

Site: Poltava, Ukraine.

Standout: In an allusion to beef passing through a meat grinder, thin strips of timber veneer appear to be extruded from the ceiling of this hamburger joint.

Hokkaido Dairy Farm by Atelier E. Photography by Dick Liu.

2. Firm: Atelier E.

Project: Hokkaido Dairy Farm.

Site: Hong Kong.

Standout: Beams angling over this cafe?’s tables are abstractions of barn rafters, but the pendant fixtures are bona fide vintage milk bottles.

Dongli Brewery by Latitude. Photography by Cao Toutao.

3. Firm: Latitude.

Project: Dongli Brewery.

Site: Beijing.

Standout: The restaurant’s copper pipes, which channel wiring for pendant fixtures, also hark back to the materiality of the brewing kettles showcased behind glass.

Fish Market by Minas Kosmidis Architecture in Concept. Photography by Studio Vavdinoudis-Dimitriou.

4. Firm: Minas Kosmidis Architecture in Concept.

Project: Fish Market.

Site: Limassol, Cyprus.

Standout: Fishing references at this restaurant range from the net repurposed to encase a chandelier to the lightbulbs used as “bait” on iron hooks bobbing overhead.

Brutto Restaurant by Sánchez + Sánchez Proyectos. Photography by Pro Pixel Panamá.

5. Firm: Sánchez + Sánchez Proyectos.

Project: Brutto Restaurant.

Site: Panama City.

Standout: The mid-century vibe derives from the wire-framed chairs, low sofas, live-edge bar, and wool-polyster felt wall covering in graphic shapes reminiscent of Gio Ponti tile work.

Pink Moon Saloon by Sans-Arc Studio. Photography by David Sievers.

6. Firm: Sans-Arc Studio.

Project: Pink Moon Saloon.

Site: Adelaide, Australia.

Standout: A 60-degree roof pitch brings a welcome sense of spaciousness to a gastropub that’s only 12 feet wide, sandwiched between much taller office buildings.

Tierra Garat by Cadena + Asociados Concept Design and Esrawe Studio. Photography by Jaime Navarro.

7. Firm: Cadena + Asociados Concept Design and Esrawe Studio.

Project: Tierra Garat.

Site: Mexico City.

Standout: A coffee brand’s light roasts inspired the choice of earthy tones, namely from timber and copper, at a company-owned café.
