Using Bamboo as the main material architects FCJZ responded to the disorganized nature of the original Tang place restaurant. The initial condition was of a main column with several semi-oval blocks.

Their design therefore was to reshape the space through a floor to ceiling connection via bamboo weaves. The interweaved bamboo screen creates a visual connection between the levels through the hollowed-out ceiling created. The main column is also wrapped with backlit bamboo transforming it into a lively focal object.

Right from the entrance, the bamboo-covered walls introduce the customers to the core design material of bamboo. Private rooms on the first floor also designed with bamboo whiles using different characteristics. The rooms above on the south are smaller and feature a special waved ceiling pattern and simple bamboo wall surface, which creates interesting and spacious room features.

All in all the main bamboo themed design according to the architects is to reflect the local cultural climate while seeking spatial effects.
