继2018年成功打造向大海致敬的顺风楼海鲜馆后,TOPOS DESIGN再次起航,联合永强顺风楼运营团队,在浙江温州的新型商业社区白麓里打造第二家海鲜馆,演奏致敬大海的续曲。在新店的设计中,我们因地制宜,对大海的意象进行编码重组,延续顺风楼海鲜馆记忆点的同时,希望能持续挑战材料的极限,创造更复杂多重的感官体验。

After successfully created Shunfenglou Restaurant in 2018, TOPOS DESIGN cooperated with the owners of the restaurant again to create the second one of its brand, which was located at a new type of commercial community named Bailuli in Wenzhou, Zhejiang province. According to the local conditions, we translated imagery of the sea in space language to remain the memory of the shufenglou restaurant; Meanwhile, we explored special materials to create complex and multiple sensory experiences.

Melody: Memory of the Sea



The locus itself as a singular artifact determined by its space and time, by its topographical dimensions and its form, by its being the set of a succession of ancient and recent events, by its memory.

——Aldo Rossi


The Site is located at the Bailuli commercial center ,a block-type commercial complex built by New Hope Group in New town, Wenzhou, Zhejiang province. Shunfenglou Restaurant took over three whole layers, including three volumes which were connected by overbridges and corridors. The whole volume of the building is broken up into parts. On the one hand, it created a more free and open atmosphere; on the other hand, it resulted in a series of problems, such as dispersing spatial distribution, a narrow main entrance, inconsistency of the images, intersecting streamlines.


Repetition, is the key to remain the memories. We applied special texture to the elevations of three separated volumes, which we first designed for the last Shunfenglou Restaurant. we create a pattern of fish scale in pre-made panels ,according to a code-base principle, which would randomly reduce the pattern’s density from top to bottom. As the fundamental chord of space, the textures of every panels are similar but different, the organic sequences made by machine, free the space from its original uniform glass curtain wall.

At the entrance, the installation seems like sunshine catching the sea,which made by electroplated corrugated stainless steel . Perforated aluminum panels continue from external walls to interior space, blurring the boundaries and creating a more free and fluid space. We used unframed panels as the interior and outside boundary instead of original al-alloy window, and flushed facade panels with indoor ceiling, to create a more concise space.

Polyphony: Imagery of the Sea



If the canoe, the musical instrument, the turbine, all results of experiment and calculation, appear to us to be “organized” phenomena, that is to say as having in themselves a certain life.

——Le Corbusier

Pythagoras believes “All things are number”. For truth, he was drowned at sea.
Vortex, wave and ocean current, embody the variation and flow of sea. Following Pythagoras, mathematics and geometry become our methods to simulate sea. Geometrical shapes are abstract imagery of sea which accurately generated by mathematics and computers: Rounded arc create space sequence; rhythmic sine function form fluctuation; higher-order function curves is the abstract expression of waves; Gradient curve group simulate vortex. Surpassingly sparkles are crashed out in the conflicts and dialogues among different imagery. Flexible curves break up single spatial experience,creates polyphonic spatial experience.

Voice Part: Materialization and Transparency



Transparency means creating relationships.

——Kazuyo Sejima


Sea seems uncertain and mysterious. Paul Cezanne break up the traditional single-point perspective, deploy the method of scatter perspective which also be applied to Chinese landscape painting, to rebuild variety perspective of time and space on two-dimensional painting. To create transparency in space which Colin Rowe defined, we create multi-spatial hierarchy in the view of material and phenomenon.

▲多义解读的空间层次 spatial hierarchy in the view of material and phenomenon


Materials are our instruments to create spatial hierarchy. Transparency vs. translucence, fluid vs. solid, plane vs. massing, penetrable space vs. corresponding views…different materials layer and overlap each other, to create different hierarchies of transparency and massing. As the first boundary, transparent glass and aluminum panels resolve the boundaries between outside and interior; Secondly, it goes on with a undulant screen made by aluminum panels, different altitudes of which delicately control opening and closing degree; Metal curtains seem like ripples, enriched complexity of perspective from horizontal dimension.

▲透明与半透明 transparency vs. translucence

▲平面与体积 plane vs. massing


Choosing the colors of materials, we are very restrained and pursue the sense of balance. A large area of white and sliver create negative space which brings a balance of formalism. Painted wavy aluminum sheet wrapped island bar; dark green leather chairs like oasis at the bottom of the sea; wood color of wavy aluminum sheet seems to cliffs washed away by the sea.

Monologue:Beyond construction

What attracts designers to the new technologies is their promise of new creative and expressive powers.

——Patrik Schumacher


With COVID-19 raging throughout all over the world, multiple industries meet the strikes and challenges, architecture and interior industries are no exception. Except for tightened budgets and intermittent progress, prevention and control of COVID-19 is a big problem for architecture industry to construction cooperate. Meanwhile, epidemic highlight the needs and importance of modular construction, prefabricating standardized components, providing digital fabrication a valuable opportunity.


In the construction of Shunfenglou Restaurant, we cooperated with construction units, decided to prefabricate standardized components, such as perforated aluminum panel, aluminum panels, corrugated aluminum curtain, electroplated corrugated stainless steel in a factory, then assembling them quickly on site. Though it needs high quality of traditional project management, quality of construction and progress had been more precisely controlled, and the risk of workers’ health reduced. There is only one real world, “It’s a missionary zeal for making a different world, a better place with all these technologies.” Patrik Schumacher says.
