Text description provided by the architects. This is a plan for a yakiniku restaurant in a tenant building near Omori Station, where there are many restaurants. In this busy area with many restaurants, there are already many competing restaurants, so we decided to make all places semi-private in order to differentiate the restaurant from others.

When the existing interior was dismantled, traces of GL bonding and the remainder of the concrete frame and rough concrete blocks were exposed. In order to make efficient use of the limited space, we chose to use the existing framework without modifying it, and for the new interior finish, we selected tiles with a feel of material as good as the existing framework.

The tiles were carefully ground one by one to remove the glaze from the surface, to give the tiles an earth-like texture, the very material. The black tiles have been ground to reveal their original color and yellowish tint. The black color is used separately for the hall, and the mottled yellowish warm color is for the private rooms.

The bedrooms are located by meandering the H2.1m partition like the stroke of a pen, while the floor plan is inspired by the zigzag design of the building facade. Entrances and exits from the guest rooms were made as short unequilateral triangular “nijiriguchi” type openings, creating an open but very private space.

The interior is lit by spotlights to bring out the volume of the tiled surfaces. The tiles illuminated by light express the grinding marks of careful manual work and the generosity of the materials. The goal was to create a cave-like space that envelops the simple grilled meat dish with the strength and softness of the earth.
