2018 Best of Design Award for Interior — Hospitality: Hunan Slurp

Designer: New Practice Studio
Location: New York

For an eatery that features authentic street rice noodles from the Hunan province of China, New Practice wanted to create a dining space that engages with the bustling East Village neighborhood. Hunan Slurp was conceived as a place to both look into and out of. Grabbing the attention of passersby, a linear volume runs from the storefront into the interior, while a group of communal dining tables anchor the core of the space and add to its continuity. The interplay between white plastered walls and backlit lattice wood screens creates a bright and warm atmosphere. The arched, fillet corner design is intended to resemble the shape of rice noodles. Beyond this central focal piece is a more intimate space. Marble-topped tables and a cozy banquette flank a glazed-wall kitchen, allowing diners to see their food being prepared.
