The exterior design of the new Osaka Japanese Steakhouse and Sushi Bar pays homage to the traditional vernacular of Japanese architectural design elements. The exterior showcases the ideology of craftsmanship through the medium of connection and simplistic detailing. While the exterior design reflects a more the traditional approach, the interior serves as an architectural threshold to a contemporary and minimalist interior. This setting provides not only ideal way-finding but also an intimate and social space offering a scale of transparency throughout. This interior design allows the hibachi style preparation of food to take center stage.
