Dining Space
Design Style:
The wood color renders a rather light and warm atmosphere to the dark grey space, while the bright yellow brings people a refreshing feeling. The overall dining space is decorated with green plants of staggered height and offers multiple dining area options for one person, couple, four people and group. Minimalist yet comfortable booths, and simplistic chairs with interesting design, together create a pleasing and cozy dining environment.

Design Focuses:
With a view to creating an efficient and comfortable dining space with clear spatial form, providing staff with catering services in an efficient but reasonable manner, and shortening queue time as much as possible, great importance was attached to the design of the dining circulation, queue circulation and used-dishes collection circulation.

QR Code Ordering:
Each dining table is placed with a QR code and people only need to scan it and wait in the seat, while the screen will display “order status” and notify them once their order is ready.

MEICAN App:
MEICAN App provides services including mobile ordering and picking-up, etc., and offers preferential price. For those who order via the app, MEICAN uses intelligent cupboards to keep their meals warm, which also saves queue time.

As opposed to simply moving a food court in, a canteen for employees should have its own spatial attributes. After all, for such a non-commercial catering space, efficiency matters most, which means that all the commercial means will make no sense and there is no need to deliberately catch one’s eyes or rack the brain for gimmicks. All that is needed is to have the catering space return to its purest inherent essence.
