MADE IN CHINA

Gothenburg, Sweden

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 citys’ labour movement, is hosted in a property going through a transformation- in total 4000 sqm being restored and adapted to new business/activities (main architect of the building transformation Axel Robach). 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 then designing a “typical” outside-of-China Chinese restaurant the interior emphasizes a more industrial feeling with it’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.
