T Magazine: A Buzzy New Shanghai Restaurant Designed by Shigeru Ban

Written By wartini cantika on Kamis, 31 Juli 2014 | 17.36

Amid Shanghai's futuristic mass of gleaming glass and rising towers, an airy, understated two-story new restaurant called Calypso offers a welcome reprieve from the shiny and new. A collaboration between the Pritzker Prize-winning Japanese architect Shigeru Ban and the design firm AvroKO, Calypso is a freestanding bamboo-clad jewel box of a building tucked into the high-end Jing'an business district. Ban's riff on traditional Chinese design was partially inspired by a former residence of Chairman Mao Zedong next door.

A seat inside the front dining room offers a view of the open kitchen. The diners, a mix of chic Shanghainese and business travelers staying at the adjacent Jing An Shangri-La hotel, come to enjoy a Mediterranean menu featuring dishes like Spanish octopus, Neapolitan pizza (from stone ovens) and rustic pastas with housemade spicy Iberico sausage. Garage-style glass doors roll up for a rare Shanghai treat, al fresco dining (when weather permits). Outside, a grand stone staircase leads to a hip second-floor cocktail lounge with a retractable roof. At night, the building emits a soft yellowish glow, creating an intimate, unexpected juxtaposition with the futuristic Shanghai skyline.
