Inside the comfort to the space is brought by lowering the ceiling height, with the use of suspended betula wood beams across the restaurant, the suspended lighting appears between each wood beam to provide the exact illumination on each table. Bellow the small white stones, hidden floor lighting brings warm and depth to the space. The sushi bar designed in betula wood is a essential element to the project, as it happens in the traditional sushi bar where you can sit directly in front of the sushi-man.

The always present materials the betula wood, the small white stones and the clear gray concrete.
