El Luchador / hcreates
El Luchador / hcreates

Designed by Hannah Churchill of hcreates, the popular mexican restaurant, El Luchador, opened its second installment in Shanghai Xintandi's new development, The House. 

"El Luchador" means "The Fighter" in English. It is the name for wrestlers in traditional Mexican wrestling, Lucha Libre. Traditionally, the luchadores wore masks to distinguish themselves, a custom that has become an iconic symbol of Mexican culture.

The hand-painted wall art features the luchadores' masks. Recycled timber flooring, exposed ceiling and industrial detailing take their cue from the first location on Yongkang Road, Shanghai. Sky-blue triangles fall freely onto the white-tiled walls, forming non-repetitive geometric patterns. Half-naked wired shades for pendant lights match the playful wall designs. Large bi-folding doors provide an unobstructed view of the outside.

The opposite side of the restaurant takes on a different look with its vintage floor tiles, hand-woven bamboo lights and cherry red polished wall tiles. The compact restaurant centers the action around a brightly tiled industrial bar. Different sized illuminative balls give the courtyard seating area a unique personality.

Urban Harvest in Hangzhou / Atelier INDJ
Urban Harvest in Hangzhou / Atelier INDJ

After successful launches in Shanghai, Beijing and Chengdu, Urban Harvest officially opened its Hangzhou branch at the end of 2015. Designed by Ian Douglas-Jones of Atelier I-N-D-J, the restaurant's unique decor has attracted many young and fashionable foodies.

Polished brass gauze connects to waxed blackened steel, providing intimacy for the diners within. Gleaming brass light fixtures shine soft yellow light onto the emerald leather benches, creating an evocative dining atomosphere.  

Burnt and burnished timber strips line the walls, giving a moody aura to the formal dining areas. A harsh mall space runs through the restaurant. Two adjacent spaces are conjoined by the same lighting from both sides. Concrete pillars stand honestly, open and unintimadating. 

Fibre glass sheets hang delicately from the ceiling on both sides, reflecting the ambient light and connecting the otherwise disparate spaces. The lighting effects on the sheets change as one passes by, every view beautiful like an oil painting. 

A micro urban farm supported by the aquaponics apparatus occupies the central area. LED lamps emit full spectrum light that bathes the surrounding dining spaces in an eerie magenta hue.

Cafe G / Atelier INDJ

CAFE g is the perfect rest stop from shopping at Hangzhou Tower. An open space delineated by the black and white zig zag tiles, the coffee shop makes an impression on sit-down customers as well as passing-by shoppers with its rich green colors embellished by polished golden details. 

Brass wrapped leather chairs, dark table top on golden cylinder stands, copper shade pendants and other designer touches give the space its personality.

Behind mesh screens sandwiched with preserved moss stand emerald leather couches and hourglass shaped chairs with scooped backrests. Cantilever lights emit an enriched glow through gleaming brass blades. 

It can easily go unnoticed, but the same pattern is applied on both the ceiling and the floor, despite their vast differences in color and material. 

Usage of copper in the coffee brewing section echoes other design details. Indented into the beige wooden ceiling, the circular fixture serves as a decorative light reflector and together with the round grass-colored carpet creates a cylindrical space that brings out intimacy.

El Luchador / hcreates

Designed by Hannah Churchill of hcreates, the popular mexican restaurant, El Luchador, opened its second installment in Shanghai Xintandi's new development, The House. 

"El Luchador" means "The Fighter" in English. It is the name for wrestlers in traditional Mexican wrestling, Lucha Libre. Traditionally, the luchadores wore masks to distinguish themselves, a custom that has become an iconic symbol of Mexican culture.

The hand-painted wall art features the luchadores' masks. Recycled timber flooring, exposed ceiling and industrial detailing take their cue from the first location on Yongkang Road, Shanghai. Sky-blue triangles fall freely onto the white-tiled walls, forming non-repetitive geometric patterns. Half-naked wired shades for pendant lights match the playful wall designs. Large bi-folding doors provide an unobstructed view of the outside.

The opposite side of the restaurant takes on a different look with its vintage floor tiles, hand-woven bamboo lights and cherry red polished wall tiles. The compact restaurant centers the action around a brightly tiled industrial bar. Different sized illuminative balls give the courtyard seating area a unique personality.

Polished brass gauze connects to waxed blackened steel, providing intimacy for the diners within. Gleaming brass light fixtures shine soft yellow light onto the emerald leather benches, creating an evocative dining atomosphere.  

Burnt and burnished timber strips line the walls, giving a moody aura to the formal dining areas. A harsh mall space runs through the restaurant. Two adjacent spaces are conjoined by the same lighting from both sides. Concrete pillars stand honestly, open and unintimadating. 

Fibre glass sheets hang delicately from the ceiling on both sides, reflecting the ambient light and connecting the otherwise disparate spaces. The lighting effects on the sheets change as one passes by, every view beautiful like an oil painting. 

A micro urban farm supported by the aquaponics apparatus occupies the central area. LED lamps emit full spectrum light that bathes the surrounding dining spaces in an eerie magenta hue.

Cafe G / Atelier INDJ

CAFE g is the perfect rest stop from shopping at Hangzhou Tower. An open space delineated by the black and white zig zag tiles, the coffee shop makes an impression on sit-down customers as well as passing-by shoppers with its rich green colors embellished by polished golden details. 

Brass wrapped leather chairs, dark table top on golden cylinder stands, copper shade pendants and other designer touches give the space its personality.

Behind mesh screens sandwiched with preserved moss stand emerald leather couches and hourglass shaped chairs with scooped backrests. Cantilever lights emit an enriched glow through gleaming brass blades. 

It can easily go unnoticed, but the same pattern is applied on both the ceiling and the floor, despite their vast differences in color and material. 

Usage of copper in the coffee brewing section echoes other design details. Indented into the beige wooden ceiling, the circular fixture serves as a decorative light reflector and together with the round grass-colored carpet creates a cylindrical space that brings out intimacy.
