SAUCE UP是位于沈阳的一家精致的西式餐吧,名字出自Pink Floyd乐队专辑《A Saucerful of Secrets》,空间是多样的、碎片化同时极具包容性,希望传达一种有包裹感、不刻意的舒适氛围。

SAUCE UP is a delicate western-style diner in Shenyang. Its name is a reference from Pink Floyd’s album A Saucerful of Secrets. The space sparks diversity. It is fragmented yet all-inclusive, hoping to convey a sense of casual and coziness.


The diner is located on the first floor of a street in the old district of Shenyang. The storefront faces two sides. Since the site used to be a grocery store, the original layout is mostly one open space, enclosed by floor-to-ceiling windows.



The original floorplan had an irregular shape. The pillars were asymmetrical and illogically placed. We took into account the locations of the pillars as well as the dining experience to partition the space into different functional areas, creating a harmonious ambience.


The first thing one sees walking into the space is an open bar and the kitchen area. The dining area is to the left. It includes three sections: long communal tables, booths and regular tables. Customers could see through to the floricultural area at the end of the dining area. There is also a designated door for the floricultural section, allowing customers to enter and exit.

入口右侧是休闲区(Lounge area),提供了休闲交谈的场所。整体布局开放、清晰,使各个功能区交互自由。

A lounge area is to the right of the entrance, providing space for people to interact. The general layout is open, self-explanatory, and allows the different functional areas to interact freely.


We intentionally kept certain parts of the original structure. The original expansion of the space by the steel and wooden panels are remnants of the history here. We used metallic and wooden colors in the space to match the original color scheme. By inserting in the long tables, it not only accentuates traces of the original space, but also helps weaken the sense of separation from the pillars.


The design uses green and brown as the main visual scheme. It gives a certain American vintage style. They are also the colors of vitality and nature. The colors of the original space, the materials of the walls and the floor, the custom-made furniture, the art pieces, and the interior design all follow the main color scheme. The presentation in entirety shows a space that communicates and connects from within. Because of this visual framework, the power of the colors expands and bleeds into the space.

SAUCE,丰富的调料般自由奔放。BISTRO,轻松的就餐气息。我们希望SAUCE UP BISTRO是美食与人自由交互的场所,通过空间构成关系与色彩的碰撞,呈现丰富的体验。

SAUCE, communicates an openness that’s like a dynamic seasoning. BISTRO, a light relaxing vibe. We hope SAUCE UP BISTRO is a place where people and food can meet freely. We designed a space that creates relationships, fluidity and contrast, all as a part of the dynamic experience of the restaurant.
