Concept design for a contemporary Japanese restaurant in London.
The design is deep, yet subtle - aiming to be a perfect environment for the food to be enjoyed and appreciated –reflecting the passion and the quality of chef’s offer.
Two separate dining areas, at the front and rear of the premises, use a combination of textures - combining wood, stone & wallcoverings in contrasting ways.
Ceilings are pained to matt black to create dramatic sense of depth which emphasise lighting mood. The central skylight with wisteria is the focal point of the dining room and creates a dramatic atmosphere. A feature wall is made in wood with Japanese traditional geometric pattern. There are several treatments of joinery and wooden panelling used in other areas in a mix of modern and traditional Japanese woodworking styles.
The timber stairs on the ground floor are located in the middle of the space, are sanded down to allow for vibrant red stain and with contrasted stained black balustrade.
