SLD Unveils Interior Design for Michelin-starred Restaurant Ying Jee Club A sophisticated blend of Oriental elegance and contemporary charm that symbolises prosperity and success

Internationally renowned interior design company Steve Leung Designers Ltd. (SLD) proudly presents its design for one-Michelin-starred Chinese restaurant Ying Jee Club. Located in Central, Hong Kong’s commercial hub, the restaurant reflects a sense of refined luxury inspired by the old prosperous Hong Kong. Taking cues from an East-Meets-West theme, the dining room features emerald and gold detailing and furnishings that symbolise “prosperity” and “success” in Chinese culture, while offering guests an elegant and intimate dining experience.

 Ying Jee Club is part of the ZS Hospitality Group and led by Michelin-starred Chef Siu Hin Chi, who presents authentic Cantonese cuisine by combining Chinese cooking techniques with modern and stylish elements. Reflecting the restaurant’s prime location and culinary characteristics, the designer has enriched the space with champagne gold stainless steel and artistic Chinese decorations for a blend of Oriental elegance and contemporary ambience. Renowned lighting designer Tino Kwan has made ingenious use of lighting and colour temperature to highlight the details and elegance of the dining space.

 An Exquisite and Unconventional Design

At the two-storey Ying Jee Club, guests can stop for a drink at the ground-level bar, which features stylish and delicate design touches that create the ideal welcome to the upstairs dining room. The brushed matte Italian stone flooring is adorned with gold lines which complement the brass-coloured, stainless steel wall and the specially designed metal lattice-patterned partitions that resemble ancient vaults that establish a contemporary, elegant ambience.

 A marble staircase leads to the first level dining space that offers guests a serene experience from the moment they enter. The reception area welcomes guests with an eye-catching turquoise fabric wall decorated with delicate utensils in traditional Chinese prints placed on champagne-coloured metal shelving. By contrast, the dining room is anchored by smoked oak wood flooring and grey wood-veneered wall set into dark wooden frames. A stainless-steel feature wall recalls ancient bank vaults and suggests “prosperity” and “success”, a direct reference to Central Hong Kong’s position as one of the world’s greatest banking hubs.

 Bespoke Oriental Charm

Bespoke design elements bring together the themes and references encompassed in the restaurant design. Tailor-made furniture includes vermilion and mustard-hued chairs with the back embellished with metallic accessories, which recalls handles of cash cabinet in ancient times. The pendant lamps by Bert Frank transform the space into a tasteful tableau of old Hong Kong, with every corner of the space dressed with a touch of Chinese art and culture. Along with the window grille, crafted in the shape of an abacus to represent abundance, runs banquette seating in royal blue upholstered with fine materials, and is complemented by auspicious jadeite-coloured utensils and Qilin trinkets atop the dining tables.

 The dining room also houses an open pavilion, offering guests an intimate, semi-private space. The tailor-made, stainless-steel lights highlight the handsomely textured dark green wallpaper and the curved wooden fence that frames the area with stunning visual effect.

 Ying Jee Club houses four private dining spaces, each beautifully decorated with a chandelier in smoky green glass and stainless steel. The thoughtful lighting serves to highlight the cream-hued, cloud-patterned wall with gold stitching, which recalls an embroidered qipao, and Branch Sconce wall lamps mounted on the corner wall complements the upholstered brown wall panels. With exquisitely decorated round tables, the design of the private dining rooms adds a stylish touch to an elegant Michelin-starred dining experience.
