During my time at Kengo Kuma & Associates, I worked on the interior renovation of Ta-ke, a Japanese restaurant nestled inside a shopping complex in Causeway Bay district, Hong Kong.
The concept of Ta-ke (meaning bamboo) is 'garden with pavilions' which provides distinct spaces to serve different delicacies - sushi, tempura and teppanyaki.
A central stone path leads visitors down the restaurant, transitioning through various layers and atmospheres created by the bamboo screens, ceiling, lighting and textures of each pavilion.
