I IN repurposes a shipping container to form the SCHMATZ beer stand in tokyo

situated within a central location of tokyo, I IN brings the tradition of german beer halls to japan with their design of the beer dining restaurant ‘SCHMATZ’. housed within a corrugated metal shipping container, the exterior of the bar evokes an industrial aesthetic. however, upon entering inside, patrons are greeted by a contrasting warm interior, filled with timber and soft lighting.

after stepping into the shipping container, visitors are transported into a surprisingly cozy interior. the design by I IN utilizes a material palette of warm timber on the floor and wall surfaces to wrap patrons in a warm atmosphere. the wood texture, which can be associated with traditional german beer halls, is offset by accents of black and copper, resulting in a more contemporary feel to the space. moveover, big neon hotdogs adorn the wall, adding a playful touch.

the design of SCHMATZ has been inspired by the context of tokyo dome, which is nearby a famous baseball stadium. with this in mind, the bar has been envisioned by I IN to fit within the sporty and trendy atmosphere of the area. with its close proximity to the venue, the bar serves as the ideal place for sports fans to enjoy authentic german beer and food after watching a match.
