As night falls, a busy day finally comes to an end. Life has just begun in the city.
In terms of atmosphere, Yakitori ya is different from the formality of a Chinese restaurant or the relaxing feel of an alley shop, it bends in better with the modern life style of the city. Enjoying wine and meat in this restaurant has become a cure for fatigue after work.
This project is located in the Ganghui Tiandi Business Circle of 5th Tianfu Street, Chengdu High-tech Zone, a central business district of the city and that is well-known for its large office crowd and usual high-density work. Therefore, returning to the design perspective of Yakitori ya, how to fit the restaurant in with local vibe, balance fast rhythms with slower ones, and create a relaxing place for people to take a little break through the presentation of space has become the topic this design attempts to explore.
The Japanese traditional wooden house structure was adopted at the door head, and the modern vibe was expressed with the help of aluminum materials. The door head is perforated in the shape of the Chinese character “个” that evolved from the brand’s totem; the two-layer eaves stand facing the street, broad and comfortable, pointing out the “theme”.
Distinguished from the brand’s usual extensive use of wood, the three colors of black, white, and red was selected in the outer swing area to achieve the emotion of “getting close” in Japanese color context and laid the core tone.
Step forward slowly along the downward-pressed slope on both sides, with double-action lines and large glass windows set up so that the inside and outside scenes continue to communicate. The facade under the eaves is wrapped by aluminum sheets to complete the overall outline, and treated by manual corrosion and glaze solidification。
As soon as a person walks in, the pattern of four-sided seating spreads orderly along the bar, giving him/her less crowded space and relatively private space at the same time. Different from the exterior’s modern and stylish look, the large-scale combination of Tung wood, elm and red brick is used in the space through special wire-drawing dyeing and cutting treatment.
The moment a person enters, he/she could quickly perceive the warm and textured atmosphere that the design was trying to create.
In the place of lights, take off the fatigue and fatigue during the day, and feel the intertwined aroma of different foods in the lively drinking atmosphere.
The lights have also become an important atmosphere maker. Every table is lit up by a specific light from above, like a candle, and matched with an ergonomic chair, bringing an intimate and comfortable dining experience to the guests.
The light sources scattered underneath the floor are like warm colored lines, leading the entrants to the area where one could sit in front of the cooks and watch them cooking skewers.
Day and night in the south of the city are the alternating aspects of work and life. The space format also caters for different periods of time. Besides yakitori, lunch staple is also available.
Satiety and contentment come together，Only when you know its taste can you aftertaste it.
