Ta-Ke by Steve Leung Design Group and Kengo Kuma and Associates

Ta-Ke is a high-end Causeway Bay Japanese restaurant wich born of the collaboration of Japanese architect Kengo Kuma and Hong Kong interior designer Steve Leung.

Not only has Sushi Ta-Ke moved on from its original home at Cubus and moved into a new 6,000 square feet ground floor space in Lee Garden it has also dropped the first part of its name. The transformation is clear when you enter the Japanese restaurant because the new design divides the restaurant into five zones, each styled after a particular part of a traditional Japanese courtyard providing the ultimate Fine Dining experience.

The design includes a white-pebble landscape, for instance. The zones are linked by stone pathways and screened by partitions made of bamboo, Kuma’s most commonly used material. The designers used locally sourced bamboo, which Kuma says is ideal in color and shape.

Fucina Restaurant by Andy Martin Architecture

The restaurant called Fucina in London’s Marylebone was designed by Andy Martin Architects and search reference the domed interior of pizza ovens. The London-based studio wanted the space to be a “visual interpretation of contemporary Italian taste” and with that, they archived the perfect fine dining concept.

The facade of the building is fitted with a colored glass and steel screen to block out the hubbub of the street, and an interior lined with brick and filled with bespoke furniture, lighting, and ironmongery. An L-shaped bar is surrounded by a grey marble countertop with an undulating edge – echoing the ceiling – and used to display fresh produce, flowers, and crockery.

Noma by Studio David Thulstrup and Bjarke Ingels Group

Bjarke Ingels Group has designed a cluster of buildings as the new home for Noma Restaurant, situated between two lakes within the community of Christiana in Copenhagen. 

Built on the site of an ex-military warehouse once used to store mines for the Royal Danish Navy, the project provides an imagined fine dining experience with an intimate culinary garden village. With interiors completed in collaboration with Studio David Thulstrup, the project dissolves the restaurant’s individual functions into a collection of separate yet connected buildings.

Built with a total of 11 spaces, the new Noma was made using the finest materials best suited for each space’s function. Every part of the restaurant experience – the arrival, the lounge, the barbeque, the wine selection, and the private company – are all clustered around the chefs.

Arbor by Yabu Pushelberg

Designed by Yabu Pushelberg, the restaurant lives out its name with organic materials and botanic tones; the oak wood paneling on the floor and ceiling are subtle nods to the venue’s dedication to fine wines, while the walls of the private rooms are embellished with depictions of trees, from cypresses to weeping willows.

The luxury dining room vision for Arbor is about contrast. The interior design firm aims to provide a tranquil and relaxing venue for diners provided a space where they can unwind and thoroughly escape the grinding pace of the city.

Arbor by Yabu Pushelberg

The intimate interior décor is a collection of warm, soft textures, curving lines and botanic tones resulting in space where guests can feel like they’re at home. This concept is reflected in its name – Arbor – which represents the sense of serenity that one experiences when walking past softly swaying trees in a pristine forest.
