Light Cave Restaurant

Moriyuki Ochiai Architects as Architects

We performed the interior design for a restaurant/bar in a long and narrow cave-like setting where dynamic ridges and furrows form luminous vicissitudes that artfully create a space enfolded in a brilliant burst of light.


Glimmering fragments of light adorn the area next to the entrance—like shards of ice or crystal—lending the space a serene atmosphere reminiscent of light on a cool winter day.


Like a living creature freely roaming about, luminous aluminum waves whirl through the air and intertwine with the red timber lattice at the boundary of the back area facing large windows, resulting in a space brimming with a feeling of lively motion.


The characteristic creases of light at the front and the back of the cave resonate with the shards of light, luminous aluminum and red timber lattice in their path, thereby bringing each microcosm into alignment and coalescing into a unique ensemble.


Thus, we sought to create a universe in which one can wander into a cozy cave and enjoy a transforming scenery as our bodies become enfolded in a whirl of vibrant light.
