A new concept for a restaurant in Qingdao, China

Qingdao, China

Fantasia is a restaurant in the chinese coastal city of Qingdao. VSP’s concept takes its cue from the location: Qingdao has become the destination of the most important chinese sailing events.

Looking at the space as a big ship ready to take the sea, VSP has created a design that recall an elegant cruise in the chinese sea.


The whole restaurant reminds a sailing boat and the different spaces are named after the nautical expression of these functions, starting from the three main areas: "All on board ", the entrance and kids area, "the Deck", the main space, and the "Captain's cabin", the VIP lounge.


Walking through the sea waved garden, the customers approach the All-on-board area, defined by the elegant wooden bar and from the cabin-like glossy walls on the right side.

The main dining area, the Deck, designed with a straight teak wood flooring, is characterized by the double height and the sailing system on the ceiling, the three eleven-meter-long masts and thick ropes to create a real sailing experience.  

In the Captain’s cabin, reachable from a hidden private entrance on the left of the bar area, the guests are welcomed by the round glass partition, interrupted by the glossy tiles on the front wall behind the main table seat.
