Design firm Viewpoint Studio has created the interiors for new restaurant Ding Dong in Singapore

London- and Singapore-based design agency Viewpoint Studio has recently completed the interiors for modern Southeast Asian restaurant Ding Dong in Singapore’s Chinatown.

Located on the ground floor of a shophouse on Amoy Street, Ding Dong’s interiors drew inspiration from Chinatown in the 1970s to 1980s. Led by Voon Wong, the design team created the walls covered by custom-designed wallpapers, which is composed of vintage film posters with an Asian cinematic theme, creating a backdrop that provides immediate intrigue before fading into the background.

Some of the most prominent design elements in the restaurant are the white lattice grilles, inspired by the traditional wrought iron trellising,  a typical feature throughout Southeast Asia. By applying such a feature, the restaurant has natural divisions within the space without any obstruction.

The open-kitchen and counter-seating layout is where guests are able to observe and interact with the chefs as their food is being prepared. The brass-clad counter separates the service and served spaces and overhead, white steel-framed shelving and a glass box define the open bar and kitchen zones respectively, while the glass box envelops the existing skylight, a common feature in shophouse architecture.
