Yakiniku Restaurant NIKUNOTORIKO
BBQ, where eating takes place with special friends in the nature, makes eating more delicious, fun and memorable. By imagining so, with more humanlike instinct and feeling, we have made the image of comfortable space surrounded by the trees on the riverside, and sometimes in the cave to avoid rain and wind.
Design cannot help but tend to depend on visual information only, but with touch and mind added, it will be carved into memory.
UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
The cave on the 1st floor is so real that it provokes the desire to touch it.
On the 2nd floor, there are walls with planting and steel pipes imitating trees, making nature-looking. Difference in level on the floor is made of OSB panel layer for the image of undulation of level curves and feeling of stepping. The steel pipes have hooks imitating branches, where jackets and bags give colors like flowers and nuts as well as controlling privacy with the next table.

A specially constructed 6.5-meter glass table which using recycled and colored has a unique look that makes it appear as if smoke has been captured in the glass. It's the only table in the world. The atmosphere itself almost resembles what you’d expect the dining environment of the earliest humans to have looked like.

Unevenness and reality of the 1st-level cave, texture of glass gravel and herringbone set under the table, wall, level difference of the floor of the second level…design appealing to not only vision, but also to touch remains more in visitors’ memories.
It will be a lasting restaurant even in this place which is a competitive restraint district.
The contour lines were all drawn by hand and adjusted the misalignment of shapes and lines by creating 3D simulation model.
Since all the OSB panels had to be shaped before carry-in and it was almost impossible to make big changes at the site, we numbered every single panel to set up on the site. Fine detailed drawing plan and precise direction was must to create the contours of the ground.
