From a simple idea to a huge project. This is what this restaurant is all about. I don’t really know what this name stands for but, I know for sure it is really hard to pronounce it, that’s why is better we are speaking in writing. You know we gather all the information we can and we browse our way through the most interesting projects around the world. The idea is to bring to the public some ideas and visions which are not that promoted because they are exclusive. Marketing is all about promoting an idea or a story to create an interesting product, but if you want to find something unique and valuable you have to search. That’s what we did. And we found this interesting idea which became reality.
Here is the Itoman-gyomin-shakudo restaurant which was brought to life with the goal to promote the cultural cuisine . The restaurant is located in Okinawa, a Beautiful Japan island.
The restaurant has an interesting story and we can tell you that it all started from the fisherman in that area who were building their fishery grounds using Ryukyu limestone.
This is exactly where the architects started their project. They adopted the NozUra Zatsumi method. This is a cultural method of building something with the help from locals and with their own methods and some local material.
I like the idea that the project is presented in photos and they are arranged in a style that they are able to tell the story on their own.
We can see how the local brought their contribution in building this restaurant. We can see the sketch right there at its place. The project was designed mostly with wood and local Ryukyu stones. The idea to make a restaurant to promote the local culture went great.
Going further, we can see how the restaurant is coming to life and we can also see how the vision of architectures is becoming reality. The interior is designed in Ryukyu limestone. These stones are a part of Okinawa history and by designing the entire walls with such stones one can easily get inside the local culture.
The roof and windows are designed with a different approach. Their goal is to create a natural atmosphere and if we add the beautiful and unique limestone we can say for sure that this goal is achieved. The roof is made of one piece and we can say that this is an original idea. The roof has the job to protect the restaurant from the hot sun, but in the same time it allows the wind to get inside the restaurant to offer a chill and cool atmosphere.
The surrounding is heavenly. Using some of the nature’s beauty, the designers managed to create a unique atmosphere with exotic trees and bright colored flowers. The sunk garden is that special touch which will make you feel you just went to heaven.
The architecture and the local cuisine is what this restaurant is offering you. Relax and feel the history of an excellent part of the world.
