The inspiration for Nakka’s second location was to provide more meeting spaces, such the grand bar, while also offering Zen like atmosphere, as can be found in the hanging bonsai gardens.
Our architecture draws on natural materials, such as wood, stones, vegetation and a great deal of natural light.
On the facade, two different tones of wood smooth out the building volume.
UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
Nakka is a Japanese restaurant located in the city of São Paulo and aimed at a young audience. Sao Paulo is home to approximately 600 restaurants that specialize in Japanese cuisine. The competition to stand out is fierce in a market like this.
The restaurant owes its success to the combination of great food, quality service and inviting ambiance.
For Nakka’s second branch, the challenge was to replicate the enormous success of the first location.
