This small Italian restaurant is located in the city of Moriyama, Shiga. It sits on a 41.16㎡ plot of land close to Moriyama station.
Although the neighborhood is centrally located near the station’s bars and restaurants, this restaurant on the ground floor of an apartment building is quiet and a bit secluded from the busy downtown area.
By creating a simple, sophisticated space with the atmosphere of a street corner in a foreign country, the design has a positive impact on the cityscape.
With a limited space of 40㎡, the restaurant is colored simply with gray and white. This creates a balance between unordinary and familiar atmospheres that keeps visitors engaged and interested.
By letting plenty of natural light into the interior, the feeling of “outdoors” is achieved inside. Time passes slowly here, enriching the experience of the visitors.
