Shiosai Restaurant


Exploiting the magnificent views of the Sea of Japan, the building is designed in a horizontal orientation, running parallel to the sea. The entire structure is enveloped in glass, allowing occupants to sense the sea from any point indoors. The framework utilizes solid hinoki (Japanese cypress) boards compressed into an L-shaped truss using a specialized technique, achieving a delicate wooden structure reminiscent of iron anchors. Furniture is crafted using molded plywood bent into an L shape, forming chairs and tables.
