Wakaba Restaurant

Wakaba’s facade is a curve of acid-etched glass that shifts the point of entry from the standard front opening to a concealed side door. The delicate arc of glass forms an ambiguous barrier between the restaurant and the life of the street, signaling its presence while also shielding the tranquility of the interior. Inside, the layout is ordered around a series of low screen walls, with tables, chairs and floors fabricated from the same white oiled beech.
