I designed the restaurant on the first floor of a multi-tenant building in Kiyamachi, a red light district in Kyoto with many restaurants.
First, a part of the facade was cut down to the inside to create the exterior. There is a courtyard that can be seen from the inside of the store, and at the same time, the facade design is in place. An inside space with a proper sense of distance was created from the noisy street.
A box-shaped volume is placed in the center of the passenger seats to separate the parlor, table seats, and counter seats. The kitchen, which was originally a restaurant, remains the same, and all the seats can be overlooked from the kitchen. The interior is monotone in its entirety, creating a calm atmosphere by reducing the illumination of the lighting.
At the counter, talk about food with the owner, look at your garden with your lover, and talk with your friends after a long absence. We aim to create a space where you can enjoy colorful creative cuisines while spending a relaxing time in each seat.
