Chidori Japanese Bistro

Project Name: Chidori
Location: Crows Nest
Date of Completion: October 2018
Project Type: Interior Design

The concept behind Chidori is inspired by Japanese minimalist architecture which mainly focuses on using only a few materials. As the restaurant primarily serves ramen, the approach to the overall design was based on using linearity to evoke the idea of noodles.

By using a natural material such as timber as the dominant cladding, a bright and uncluttered space is achieved thus creating a casual and comfortable atmosphere that is Japanese in every way. The modern and clean design is elevated by the subtle play of light and shadow formed by the linear features on the walls and ceiling. This adds texture and depth to the design without comprising the minimalistic feeling of the interior.
