TAKEMOTO Japanese Restaurant
Drama & Stage
UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
A new theatrical dining experience cross-over traditional Japanese cuisine. The restaurant contains a “thirty people open dining area” and “eleven VIP rooms” .The open dining area and stage like food bar were surrounded by an illuminated uplight glass walk path which made the centre stage as a statement. Natural bamboo ceiling feature with directional spot lights in a dark color open ceiling is another dramatic element to the main theme and helps drawing attention to the centre. VIP rooms were visually connected through a wood frame sliding door inserted with an engraved sandblasted glass panel of traditional fabric weaving pattern. Combination of different shades of neutral warm tone gives a rustic outlook while dark color wood made it contrasting. Natural wood and stone finishes from smooth to heavy texture together with stage lighting effect to create layers of color shade and depth.
