Branching out: Sushi eatery creates a canopy

13 : 06 : 2011 Tranquil : Tree : Australia

Sutherland, AustraliaKoichi Takada Architects has created an interior for sushi restaurant Tree inspired by Hanami, the Japanese festival of spring.

The restaurant has been designed in the shape of a tree, with a ceiling undulating from a central point. Timber louvres create the branches of the tree.

The designers wanted to emulate the comfortable and tranquil feeling of being under a tree canopy. The lights are positioned behind the wooden louvres, creating irregular light patterns that mimic natural light shining through branches and leaves.

Using nature as an inspiration is a great way to make people feel at ease in a space. For more examples of how architecture can shape consumer experiences, read our Responsive Architecture micro trend.
