CASE-REAL converts dry cleaner's store into 20 sqm sushi restaurant in fukuoka

CASE-REAL has transformed a former dry cleaner’s store with an uneven exterior wall line and roof shape into sushi takigawa, a 20 sqm counter-type sushi restaurant in fukuoka, japan. while its exterior, whose walls are finished with stucco, is designed to quietly blend into the surroundings at night, the restaurant’s interior features a distinct atmosphere through a palette of similar tones that comprises materials such as gingko, japanese cypress, and clayey walls.CASE-REAL converts dry cleaner's store into 20 sqm sushi restaurant in fukuokaall images by hiroshi mizusaki

 

 

CASE-REAL has maintained the store’s exterior close to its original state, replacing only the original roof with galvalume steel plates, and layering the exterior walls with stucco. for the interior, the japanese studio has followed the client’s request for a counter-type sushi restaurant where the chef can stand in the center, and created a curved counter that extends parallel the line of the exterior wall to maximize the seating area within the 20 sqm space. behind the counter, a simple blank wall without any function creates a minimal backdrop for the sushi craftsman, while most cooking utilities aside from the ones used for preparation are hidden beneath this curved counter.

little decoration and minimal details, such as the restaurant’s sign, create a tranquil atmosphere, while the tapered ceiling that radially spreads from the preparation area towards the guests, creates a centrality withing the small space. adding to the tranquil interior, the material and color palette incorporates similar tones and materials such as gingko on the counter, clayey walls and ceiling, and  japanese cypress. CASE-REAL converts dry cleaner's store into 20 sqm sushi restaurant in fukuoka CASE-REAL converts dry cleaner's store into 20 sqm sushi restaurant in fukuoka CASE-REAL converts dry cleaner's store into 20 sqm sushi restaurant in fukuoka
