NATURE TIMES ART DESIGN CO., LTD
In a limited space, the restaurant provides late-night diners with an artistic, warm and private environment to enjoy delicacies. This cozy and aesthetic place becomes a solace at night, even if one is eating alone. Clay is a main building material, which echoes the restaurant's theme - “yakiniku”. The material effectively warms the lonely hearts in the city both visually and tactilely, making this personalized element more sophisticated and mellow in such a compact space. The space, which can only accommodate a dozen people, becomes an emotional shelter for people in the bustling city.The restaurant only opens at night, which gets rid of all the troubles and trifles during the day. This “box” standing at the corner of a high tower becomes a symbol that questions “coldness and desolation”. Entering the space, customers will soon take off shackles and pressure of the day, and embrace relief and relaxation. Scattered light and shadows penetrate from outside to inside, and the simple, powerful exterior is shifted to interior liveliness. The whole space strikes a dynamic balance between order and disorder, providing storytelling solitary or boisterous scenes.The brick-red clay shows a sense of inclusiveness, which, combined with uniquely arranged patterns, irregular private entrance and warm lighting, ensures that the bright window doesn't fall into the shade of darkness. The space is so small that people becomes a part of it when night falls. The night here provides an ideal retreat for the guests to immerse in and enjoy the moment.
