The design uses Japanese architectural elements for the organisation of space, adapted to the aesthetics and functionality of modern dining facilities. The central idea is to create a space dedicated to the living experience of Asian food, excised from the city environment.
Access to the main area is via a wide staircase in black granite, surrounded by lush vegetation that creates a filter between the cityscape and the interior, marking the entrance through a “secret” garden.
Indoors, narrow beam lighting emphasises the dining tables and the bar, clad in marble permeable to light, illuminates the main space.
The dining area is on an elevated wooden ramp, where tables and chairs are carved into the floor.
The tables are separated by wooden frames, a reference to Japanese partitions, while velvet curtains offering seclusion and privacy.
