New Miami sushi restaurant offers a playful contemporary take on traditional Japanese joinery

26 Jun 2020 News

Miami’s new Kosushi Restaurant by Studio Arthur Casas offers customers the experience of Japanese vernacular architecture combined with a highly creative, and contemporary take on wood joinery and materiality.  

Filippo Bamberghi

Central to the space is a woodworking concept that creates moments of wonder and surprise. Inspired by Japanese building traditions, the structure draws from the Japanese art of joinery, in which structures are created with complex joints and without the use of glue or metal supports. 

Filippo Bamberghi

Light oak was used for the entirety of the restaurant’s woodwork and is combined with grayish tones and concrete textures for the walls. All design metals are in a bronze finish, resulting in a balanced and elegant contrast against the cooler, lighter shades used elsewhere.

Lighting was designed in an integrated way that amplifies the light and shadow effects of the cube-shaped ceiling, while also ensuring a comfortable mood and atmosphere for patrons.

At the heart of the space, a curving feature sushi bar stands out in contrast with the orthogonal ceiling.
