SZ-ARCHITECTS: MIZUNOE is an established Japanese restaurant in Nanjing, the new store is located in the CBD business district of Eastern River in Nanjing, facing the quiet Green Axis Park.




We hope to inherit the owner’s cooking spirit, making every guest can experience the spirit of cuisine and space while enjoying food through the design.

“Cooking is like writing in water.” This is the owner’s profound understanding of cooking. Therefore, that is what inspired me to design.

In order to take advantage of the location of restaurant and meet the owner’s needs for 10 VIP rooms, we have rotated the layout of the internal space to make the sunlight can enter the internal space layer by layer along the space gap after rotation. The tilted external facades created by the rotation also make it clear to guests entering from the east main road.

In the internal space layout, the Elegant Houses “TATAMU” is taken as the basic module, and the VIP rooms of different sizes and forms are formed through combination and dislocation, showing the organizational relationship of void-solid combination. The negative space between the VIP rooms creates the circulating light scene and personalized room.

In order to make the light quieter, we choose acrylic instead of traditional Japanese shoji paper to make the sliding door and partition wall of the rooms, which optimizes the sound insulation of the traditional shoji paper sliding door, and also makes the light at different times penetrate into the room through the filter layer of material to present different atmosphere and artistic conception.

Borrowing from the buckets system in Chinese traditional architecture, the cantilever structural beams are exposed at the facade through the interpenetration of 4-story steel beams, which makes the rooms of different sizes hide in the shadow and landscape with humble posture, reflecting the hierarchy and layering of the space.
