Made in China is a Chinese dim sum restaurant in Gothenburg with the focus on enjoying chinese flavors without the formality of fine dining.

The restaurant, located in an area historically known as the home of the citysʼ labour movement, is hosted in a property going through a transformation- in total 4000 sqm being restored and adapted to new business/ activities. The restaurant is placed in the new part of the property; the building is from 1977 and was formerly used as a delivery gate and warehouse.

Rather than designing a “typical” outside-of-China chinese restaurant we put the emphasis on a more industrial feeling with itʼ s raw, clean and simple/minimal selection of materials. New walls are all cladded with colored in grey cladding (lime plaster) and existing structure is kept in its raw original state, only painted in a darker grey. The space is facing the street, the facade is upgraded with new window frames in dark grey. A wall dividing the previous delivery gate and warehouse has been torn down, exploiting the existing construction. The layout is clean and simple; long tables with benches in different constellations, the u- shaped bar with the open visual connection to the kitchen and the preparation of food; by function resembling of asian restaurants, the arrange with seating and the round table with its big lamp of steel.

All furnitures are made out of massive oak (clear coated) and dark steel (clear coated with some percentage of black powder to enhance the dark and “untreated” features). As an exception to the dark-grey walls we did a large scale painting on the big wall facing the street. It resembles old-school posters from revolution China but with a Gothenburg motif from the same era in time; the shipyard and its craftsmen.
