designed by yuko nagayama & associates, the organically-planned circulation and flow of the three-storey building is put on view through its fully-glass exterior. the west and south-facing façades are installed with glass, steel-sash windows and promotes light, a clear view of restaurant’s activity, eating areas and the rooftop terrace. upside-down planters hang from the double height ceiling; suspended at the same height as the mezzanine level.

the corner frontage featuring a four-panel sliding door opens up completely to invite customers and encourages the aroma from the kitchen to waft out to the street. coupled with the series of casement windows and bench seating outside, a sense of fluidity is established.

 

 

 

‘I feel the flow of this building welcomes in both locals, and visitors, working in harmony within this charming neighborhood.’yuko nagayama
