Rachel’s Burger in Shanghai has a new face thanks to the design team at Neri&Hu. Inspired by the drive-up burger shops in the US in the 1950s, the restaurant is designed as a porous space where the boundaries of indoor and outdoor space are blurred.
To enhance usable space, the exterior wall, composed of sliding doors, can be fully opened. By playing with clear and textured glass on the doors, the interior achieves a bright and inviting look.
Meticulous design can also be seen in visual elements, as the floor and bar tables use the same pattern. Communal tables with swiveling seats offer greater flexibility for its customers as well.
