Shoryu Restaurant by Blenheim Design Ltd

Home > Winners > #63465


DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Shoryu

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Restaurant

INSPIRATION:
Inspiration came from the basic principles of Hakata’s historic building techniques and Oxford historic palete to create Japanese restaurant serving ramen. The principal idea for the design was based on Tsou Yen’s belief that life is moving through five phases - fire, water, metal, wood and earth. We incorporated these elements throughout the space to create harmonious and ordered design with modern touches.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
Restaurant is centered around an impressive open kitchen complete with a traditional yakitori grill and ramen counter offering diners the chance to experience the exciting creation of Executive Chef Kanji Furukawa. Design for Shoryu restaurant draws from the ancient philosophy of yin and yang. Restaurant interior simultaneously soothe and energize. Space was designed to deliver virtual hug of energetic atmosphere whilst using calm Japanese pallet and local materials. Buzz is created by welcoming shouts of Irasshaimase and beating of the drum.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
After being greeted by the Japanese drum at the entrance, layered seating arrangement is creating points of visual interest and unobstructed views into the open kitchen and Japanese bar. This layout allows clear interaction between staff and customers. Restaurant is wrapped around the glass fronted theater kitchen, whilst raised bar is situated on the right hand side of the space and is featuring gold leaf sake barrels, unique ice beer slushy and large selection of Japanese cocktails and whiskey.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The project started in February 2017 in Brighton and Finished in December 2017 in Oxford.

FITS BEST INTO CATEGORY:
Interior Space and Exhibition Design

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
We used Japanese traditional building techniques and fused them with elements and materials of Oxford. Bespoke Hakata wall was formed from Japanese roof tiles set inside the plaster mixed with lime, pigment and straw, this is a thousand old building technique unique to Hakata region of Japan. Oak, stone and bronze provided subtle nod to historic Oxford, whilst Japanese elements come from illuminated rice, geometric fabric, paper lanterns, bamboo and suspended sake box screens.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
267 sq meters plus 52 sq. m. of the new mezzanine level housing mechanical extraction. Show kitchen is 9m long with bespoke 7m long stainless steel water gully.

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
Our research was based on origins of the Tonkotsu dish and the restaurant setting - historic Oxford. Tonkotsu soup originates in Hakata area of Japan and we wanted to bring that to Oxford. Hakata wall is unique as it was constructed to defend from Mongolian invaders. Wall is constructed by setting broken roof tiles into a mixture of lime plaster, hay and pigment. We made this wall sit directly opposite stone clad columns with bespoke bronze lighting band, which represents materials of Oxford.

CHALLENGE:
Challenge was to create simple and elegant restaurant housing 90 customers whilst fusing two different cultures. Further challenge was presented in the form of the drainage. Unit had only three SVP with no option of additional points, yet restaurant had to house two fully functioning kitchens, feature bar and seven bathrooms. We overcame this issue by positioning and elevating all wet areas around the perimeter to create enough drainage fall.
