As is often the case with interior design, it is easy to complete itself only inside, but how do we make connection to the outside. I hope it should have deep structure of space but not only surface design.

In this Japanese bistro which is mainly based on rice, it has three concepts as centripetal, oriental and particulate. First, utilizing the sufficient height of the space, we set the entrance as high and the back as low. Then this perspective makes the centripetal space which attract people into the space. Secondly, we referred and extended flying rafter which is often used at the traditional Zen temple, and by overlapping several layers of rafters, we construct a step-like dynamic ceiling to express powerful orientality. Thirdly, following the traditional Zen temple’s way, the edge of the rafter is covered by white plate so that we can see a large number of white dots scattering. Needless to say this particulate is a metaphor of the rice.
