A minimal, approximately 20sqm sushi restaurant. The site was a former dry cleaner in a wood structure with an uneven exterior wall line and roof shape in comparison to the shape of the land.The client requested for a counter type sushi restaurant where the chef can stand in the center.
To fulfill this request, we created a counter that was curved parallel to the line of the exterior wall. A simple blank wall without any function was placed behind the sushi craftsman, while most cooking utilities aside from the ones used for preparation were hidden beneath this curved counter. We succeeded in avoiding the backyard of the restaurant to be visible from a close range to the guests.
Gingko was used as the main material of the counter, surrounded by other tranquil elements from the same color palette such as the clayey wall and Japanese cypress.
The original roof was replaced with Galvalume plates, and the exterior walls were finished with stucco. While the exterior was designed to quietly blend into the surroundings at night, we aimed to create a clearly distinct atmosphere for the interior.
