Ondine bar&salon -Floating-

This bar, ‘Ondine’, is in a tenant building located on a busy road in the middle of Kitashinchi in Osaka. Kitashinchi has changed recently and is no more a town of expensive clubs and restaurants. In any business ( restaurant? Or bar? ) space, a sense of the extraordinary is usually required. However if the design is overdone, the space would become unsophisticated and crude. Furthermore if the space is small, the result would be worse.  Caption   This design which is ‘simple and somewhat playful’ rouses the imagination of people who experience that space. ‘Nothing will be added, nothing will be reduced’, this was how I designed Ondine.  ‘Ondine’ means water fairy in Fre...

Chubby Noodle Restaurant

Chubby Noodle is a restaurant in San Francisco, California serving locally sourced Asian-fusion comfort food. Remodeled from an American style bar and restaurant, this 400 square foot establishment now boasts a rich midcentury modern inspired look. Bronze tones populate the space, from the curved metal bars separating the booths to the bar front clad in bronze wire mesh. Chosen for its visual density, wire mesh pattern S-16 creates a durable façade across the front of the bar without losing the aged characteristics of the dark wood. The unexpected use of the decorative bronze mesh compliments the overall aesthetic of the restaurant, adding an industrial touch to the vintage décor. When lit from above, the many facets of S-16...

Café Slatkine

At the heart of Geneva's old town, Café Slatkine reinvents the genre of the literary cafe, books on one side and bottles on the other.    Opened in 1918 by Mendel Slatkine, the venue is an unmissable, centenary-old institution of Calvin's city. For a long time, it worked as a bookshop only. Two generations later, it made sense to convert the space into a literary cafe, combining the intellectual legacy to something more telling of our time.    In a relatively confined space, narrow in places and with an open window front on the street, the challenge was to bring together books and bottles, mixing heritage and contemporaneity, fiction authors with gossips at the counter. To do so, the architects designed two la... More

Le Mirazur Bar and Restaurant

The project restored and converted a 1950’s building into a restaurant bar with banquets rooms, staff accommodation and a garden with aromatic herbs. The main restaurant room and a small servery are located at street level. Façades were reshaped with wider openings, in order to allow for more transparency and a better panoramic seaview .Fabric awnings projecting out of the external envelope are dynamic elements that emphasize again the lightness of the new structure and make the building look as a vessel ready to sail. The respect for the nature of the site is achieved by using only a few coherent materials and simple finishes like white render and fabric awnings, local flamed stone, transparent glass, grey paintedsteel with...

Whitney Architects HQ

When Whitney Architects decided to move their long-term headquarters to downtown Chicago, they required a space that exemplified both their key brand values, and the spatial solutions required of a bustling firm—an office that prioritized a design-forward, flexible, activity-based work environment. Upon arrival, guests are welcomed into the heart of the space—the work café, designed as a testament to the hospitality the firm extends to both visitors and staff, and their client-focused approach. To help realize this brand value, the design team turned to Banker Wire’s M33-5—an architectural flat wire mesh pattern —within the café and bar space. The wire mesh, specified in an antique copper plated... More

The project arises from the need to specify a space intimately linked with the chef's particular culinary concept; a contemporary style that mixes the essence of the local with the best of international cuisine. The program is resolved on a single floor and 3 main areas: the service area (kitchen, cellar and toilets), the living room and the terrace that is surrounded by a perimeter of dense vegetation and intervened by ceibas and chakás. To resolve the space, a reduced range of materials used in their simplest possible form is chosen, integrating recycled or recovered materials throughout the process; steel, concrete, Mayan cream stone, wood from the region mainly, chucum and pasta mosaics are mixed to give shape to an eclectic and...

‘Dukkeobi’ project (means ‘toad’ in Korean)   <Hey toad> Hey toad, hey toad, I'll give you an old house, give me a new house. Hey toad, hey toad, get me some water, I'll build your house. Hey toad, hey toad, your house is on fire, bring your chains and come around.   『 <Hey toad]> is a traditional Korean children's song that has been handed down for a long time.

There are several theories about the meaning of this song. One of them is that it contains the following metaphorical meanings. For example, "old house" means "mother" a... More

The Dockers

In a nod to classic Victorian design, the ceiling is decorated with gold-painted painting. Metallic color chairs and benches stretch around the room’s perimeter, creating a modern industrial look that contrasts esoterically with the other classic, rustic elements of the space. Wood-paneled walls wrap around the room, blending with the sleek, metallic chairs. Warm-brown sofas and chairs pepper the middle of the room. Surrounded by wood-paneled walls, brown sofas, and metallic chairs, guests feel as if they are in the cabin of a classic ship. Like a shrine embedded in the middle of the room, the bar emits a soft light, contrasting with the darkness of the surrounding chairs. The stainless steel counter and bar wall match the chairs sp...

Le Bar

MASSIVE ELEGANCE  The heart of this loft is the organically curved, metal-coated bar, which was completely 3D printed from concrete, in just a few days using robot technology. Within several weeks of manual work, the object was sanded and completely metallized. With its weight of about five tons, this unique object appears to be present in the room but still exudes elegance. More
