Since we believe that the food and the chef and the guest are the main characters in this space, we decided to make it a simple structure without too much excessive decoration, and which gives the space the pizzazz of Japanese through l ’empty space. By making the best use of the existing walls and gently dividing the elongated space, we have created a space like a private space and a small Japanese garden-like approach while being a distance where you can communicate with the chef.

For the edges of the walls, the tables and the shelves, we select types of wood with a warm color, and by manually treating the curved surfaces at each end, we give it a presence as a piece of furniture instead of a light fixture, giving the space an air of home. texture. Additionally, the warm light like flames created by reflecting light off the bespoke copper also helps create a cozy space.
