Ristorante Mondo, Jiyu-gaoka, Tokyo, 2007

Mondo Residence, Restaurant Jiyugaoka, Tokyo, 2008


The restaurant was created by minimal white boxes with several windows to connect both outside and inside. Instead of design architecture as a monument, we tried to keep main dinning as pure void and create various things like garden, painted wall, Art, wine room, waiting room, book shelf, kitchen, food storage, flowers and secret room around the main dining. They could increase the value of space and let guests imagine the “behind” where they are. Imagination of the “behind” might be also felt such as “soil” when they eat vegetables, “sea” when they eat fish and “farm” when they eat meat.
