New Vancouver Chinese restaurant to feature Beijing skyline on ceiling

Chinese families traditionally celebrate Lunar New Year by inverting “prosperity” signs that indicate its arrival. To that end, a new West Coast Chinese restaurant looks to take this custom to its logical conclusion by inverting one of China’s most famous sights: the historic skyline of Beijing.

The new Vancouver branch of the Quanjude roast duck franchise will feature inverted three-dimensional replicas of the Temple of Heaven and the Forbidden Palace on the ceiling of its main dining hall, reports designbloom.

The design was inspired by the view atop the mountain overlooking Beijing’s Forbidden City. “I most hope that people who come to Quanjude Vancouver store will say a few words: Beijing is here!” explained Lee Hsuheng, lead designer at Beijing-based Golucci Interior Architects.

The swanky new restaurant also includes other notable Beijing references. Quanjude Vancouver walls feature the same red hue as those found in Zhongnanhai while its porcelain reception podium is coloured the same blue as the distinctive plaque found at Wensu Pavilion.

Quanjude Vancouver delayed opening from autumn of last year became even more delayed after a car smashed into its front door this past January. No one was hurt in the accident.

Quanjude Vancouver is touted to become Canada’s first 5D luxury restaurant. The cutting edge technology will project images onto walls and objects to create an immersive visual reality environment in the restaurant’s private dining room.
