The stepped terrazzo floor, strip lighting and foggy mirrored walls inside this Beijing noodle bar designed by Office AIO are meant to mimic the urban makeup of the city of Chongqing.
Chubby Girl is situated in Beijing's Xiang'Er hutong and, since 2015, has been locals' go-to spot for Chongqing noodles – a spicy street food dish that hails from the city of Chongqing in south-west China.
When Office AIO was approached to overhaul the restaurant, it was initially hesitant to make major aesthetic changes to the interior that loyal diners had grown accustomed to.
The studio ended up designing a fit-out informed by the landscape of Chongqing, nodding to both Chubby Girl's menu and the history of the restaurant – the first branch opened in Chongqing in 1998.
A key point of reference was the work of photographers Nadav Kander, Mark Horn and Tim Franco, who have all captured images of Chongqing's dense urban fabric, towering industrial structures and twinkling night skyline.
