CCD / Cheng Chung Design recently completed this stunning japanese restaurant in Suning Zhongshan Golf Resort, Nanjing. The restaurant is defined by simplicity, clarity and profundity. It incorporates Zen and wabi-sabi aesthetics that reveals poetry in imperfection, impermanence and incompleteness. Take a look at the complete story after the jump.

From the architects: The Michelin-starred Japanese restaurant “KUROGI”, known as the hardest restaurant in Tokyo to make a reservation, opened a new premise in Suning Zhongshan Golf Resort, Nanjing. Designed by CDD, the restaurant provides a divine, Zen-like dining environment.

Courtyard landscape

Bamboos, trees, waterscape and stones form poetic, serene courtyard landscape. CDD subtly integrated Zen ideas, Oriental culture and natural elements into the stone path, tile landscape walls and bamboo grove, so as to creating a breathing environment filled with natural rhythms.

Nowadays, people are easily lost in the hustle and bustle of the world. The design team adopted minimalist design languages to create a simple, serene dining environment.

The restaurant is like an island floating on the garden. Whether sitting on the Japanese-style porch in the courtyard, or looking out through windows while dinning inside, guests can feel the Zen atmosphere brought by the mirror-like waterscape. The water seems still, but actually flows slowly, evoking infinite imagination.

Integration between the interior and outdoors

The design adopted simple materials, abandoned sophisticated details and artificial carving. The wooden structural “boxes” are topped with flat eaves to blend into nature with a low profile.

The wooden tables and chairs, tatami rooms, characteristic Japanese-style wallpapers and textured wall finishes create unique visual experiences, and reveal the traditional, classy elegance of the Japanese restaurant.

The spatial design does not need any gorgeous decoration, as door and window frames bring in outdoor landscape, presenting varying views throughout the year.

The slender skylight is a design highlight. As sunlight penetrates the skylight and casts shadows, the scene is as aesthetic as the ones described by Junichiro Tanizaki, a famous Japanese writer. The faint and varying light and shadows produce a poetic ambience. The Oriental aesthetics in the space fully embodies the quintessence of elegance.

This Japanese restaurant is defined by simplicity, clarity and profundity. It incorporates Zen and wabi-sabi aesthetics that reveals poetry in imperfection, impermanence and incompleteness.
