Entry Description

Objective was to create Japanese brasserie serving rustic and refined dishes. We believe that the good restaurant design should reflect the food on offer. We researched Wabi Sabi and Yungen principles of aesthetics which progressed to Mayabi and Shinto principles. Materials and colour palette drew from Japanese elements of earth, metal, stone, wood, fire and water. Result is an atmospheric and functional fine dining environment that embodies a luxurious feel throughout the restaurant interior.Design concept is based on Japanese philosophy of five elements. Entrance is located in the birth area, featuring wood, whilst restaurant and bar are in the centre where yellow colour is reflected in brass and plaster colour. Earth which represents power is found in Shikui plaster and Washi throughout the restaurant. Design of the space is fairly unique in a sense that Anzu is an easily recognisable Japanese restaurant whilst Parisian brasserie feel comes from materials.
