Narrow Restaurant with Unique Facade Design

Narrow Restaurant with Unique Facade Design

Designed by ISSHO Architects, this narrow restaurant has a simple but comfortable place to eat. This restaurant located in Tokyo, Japan, right around the corner from the major thoroughfare Meguro Street. Above the restaurant there is the owner’s residence.

The building has Machiya-style wooden louvers, invoking a traditional Japanese townhouse, but the depth of each louver is varied sequentially across the face. Regionally different patterns of light spill through the facade from the interior, allowing a gradual change of character at dawn, especially as viewed from the main street.
