Description: A primarily Japanese restaurant also serving Korean food located within a residential area.
Concept: An informal dining experience were one can share sushi or izakaya- style dishes such as tempura, yakitori or sashimi amongst friends.
As an earlier night customer one may opt for the more traditionally western three course meal, such as yakimono, agemono and teppanyaki dishes.
Brief: Asian food in a Mediterranean setting. The interior should emit the essence of northeast asian culture with a combination of traditional technology and aesthetics. The result will be an informal yet elegant interior.
The building is an art deco townhouse which over the years has had numerous interventions. The design strategy was to discard later additions and maintain and highlight the original features of the house.
The response to the space was to use a sensibility that successfully merges the existing building with an Asian element to cater for the new building use.The main bar and sushi kitchen are treated as an insertion into the space. The two volumes are clearly built-to-fit the existing space but are deliberately designed to contrast with the host space.
