Japanese grilled meat restaurant “Kissyan Eirakucho Matsu” is newly opened in Kitashinchi, where Japan’s famous entertainment district in Osaka. I set a goal to remain this existing façade and develop it by fusion between Japanese tradition and contemporary value. At first, original landscape is newly painted by grading colors as like dyeing Washi paper, the existing façade reborn together with a moss garden as a new landmark matched with this historical area. At the end of the corridor, a pine tree relief made of tin caught one’s eye. This is a representation of “Noh” stage, a Japanese traditional theatrical arts. A guest can enjoy live kitchen at this counter seats area as if he is an audience of “Noh” stage.
