portuguese practice A2G arquitectura has created ‘sushihana’, a sushi restaurant in porto, portugal.
inviting and minimal, the space seeks to communicate a contemporary architectural language while
retaining a unique aesthetic. materialized through milky-white wood and perforated back-lit panels,
the design seeks to reveal itself discreetly, drawing curious passerby’s into the warm interior.
the main dining room is contained within an inner volume that generates a more intimate and controlled
environment. surrounded by louvered panels and defined by a dropped ceiling, the semi-enclosed
eating area is treated in contrast to the rest of the space and divides the restaurant into two distinct zones:
sit down and take-away. an abstract japanese motif wraps around the walls and ceiling, its perforated skin
acting as the primary source of artificial light.
