Xun Eight Japanese Concept Restaurant
Mountain is famous for the living saints, instead of the height.
Water is miraculous because of the residing dragons, not the depth.
Room is peaceful if the spirit exits, regardless it is luxurious or shabby.
Japanese cuisine, modest and pure, exquisite and pure, conveys the deliberate and steadfast spirit. The idea of the space design is to create innovation while maintaining the traditional features. Although the key is not the spatial decoration but the chef and the dishes, the space is designed to be memorable with the aftertaste and long lasting in the time, like our Japanese cuisine.
The theme is a white fish, which is inspired by the classic sushi combination of rice and sashimi. The restaurant is a humble room with a white fish living inside, reflecting the gourmet spirit into the space with simple but long lasting taste.
The restaurant has two floors. The first floor consists of a forecourt, an indoor open cooking area and an indoor kitchen. The second floor has a dining area and private rooms, separated by the stairs. The dining area is next to a big window with natural light pouring in, which allows you to overlook the streetscape.
Material and Lighting:
With bluestone, log, rice paper, linen curtain, cane chair and ceramic plate combining together, it creates a simple and friendly environment, making guest feel comfortable. The light pours onto the stone stairs and the white walls through the rice paper and linen curtains, making the white fish swim vividly as real. This is the principal idea of the design, the soul of the space and a surprise for the guests.
