Slurp Restaurant Takes on Noodle-Themed Design

A noodle-like arch hangs proudly over customers at New Practice Studio’s Slurp Restaurant in New York.

The restaurant serves authentic street rice noodle from Chinese province Hunan, and New Studio has tried to emulate this by creating a dining space that engages with the bustling neighbourhood of East Village, NY.

The long space of Slurp is accentuated by a wooden arch with fillet corners ‘carved’ from the white volume.

“The space is conceived as a place to look through; a continuous volume is carved out from the storefront into the interior so that a direct dialogue is established between the street and the restaurant,” explained the New Practice team.

A group of long dining tables anchors the centre of the restaurant and adds to the continuity of the space. The interplay between the white plastered walls and the wooden screen creates a bright and warm atmosphere.

The rhythmic wood screen with fillet corners reinforces the geometry of the space while resembling the rice noodle served in the restaurant. The screen is set over existing brick walls and carefully designed backlighting adds another layer of subtlety to the volume.
