China 2018Také

Hong Kong
Interior | Retail/Cafe/Restaurant

According to the old Chinese story “Seven Wise Men of the Bamboo Grove”, the grove has healing powers. In order to elicit the feeling of dining within a bamboo grove, we used bamboo (také in Japanese) everywhere and in as many ways possible, creating an expansive Japanese restaurant here in Hong Kong. We were able to produce a restaurant as a garden, rather than a restaurant simply as an interior space.
