A interior design of Korean grill restaurant. The owner required somewhat taste of Japanese style.

It was designed to make feel wider by the effect of glass and lighting.

The glass screens are device for revealing the existence of various machines. By applying the lighting from the backside, the existence of mahines disappears and they has an impression of as if the glass screens are windows.

The lighting also illuminates the floor and ceiling. Those make feel the floor and the ceiling more highly.

See the inside of the restaurant. Various devices for cooking and serving are covered with a glass screen to weaken the impression and reduce the oppressive feeling in a narrow space.

Lightings illuminate the ceiling and floor, to make feel the ceiling height higher. Actually, the part under the low beam is only 2.1m, but according to the effect, a guest doesn't feel the oppressive feeling.

In the depths is a board floor seat where a guest can take off shoes. Normally, exhaust fans and ducts appear above the grill, but in this restaurant, a floor suction type exhaust fan is used, and the ductsare under the bench in the guest seats. By doing so, fans and ducts will not appear on the table, and the interior will be neat and spacious.
