Dan Brunn Architecture created a surreal, minimalist space for diners to experience Yojisan Sushi in Beverly Hills, CA, through a narrative of allusion and light. This subtle surrealism begins with the façade, which beckons guests to enter a threshold subdivided by delicately intersecting planes. The transition from city street to refuge—chaos to serenity—is experienced on multiple levels. Instead of relying on restaurant design clichés, the architect elected “to step through the looking glass” with this design, upending ordinary representations of sushi restaurants. The result is a simple yet substantial visual array inspired by traditional Japanese materials, culture, and lifestyle.

The Filmax Cinemas in Gran Vía, located within the Gran Vía 2 shopping centre, opened their doors 15 years ago, with this business model’s boom, which is based on leisure and mass consumption, and it led to fi lling the urban centres with a multitude of shopping centres, combining shops, restaurants and multi-screen theatres. After this golden age and before the paradigm shift, the client seeks a project to straighten up the cinemas by reducing their dimension, optimising their functioning and offering an experience which goes beyond what happens inside the room.

Designed to fully exploit this exceptional location, Ilot Queyries’ facades adapt to their opposite views towards the River Garonne and the historic city. The plan aims to reflect the qualities of Bordeaux World Heritage Site city centre whilst adding new qualities. Emblematic of the masterplan are facades with 45° angles which are used as a tool to generate maximum ventilation, daylight and sun. These angles have also opened the possibilities to create innovative housing. The larger building at the riverfront will have a distinct gold-splashed façade, whilst different shades of ceramic tiles, give a textured effect from top to bottom. The glass-fronted rooftop restaurant offers panoramic views of the historic city and river. At the heart of this collective dwellings is its large public courtyard with a garden of alder, birch and high grasses.

Designer combines Chinese and Western culture tactfully and uses innovative design method to create a pleasure dining space.
Openness and closeness is a contradictory combination, and a relative goodness. The extremely simple lines are used for the vivid space division, so as to meet the dining demands to the largest extent. Different dining areas are divided by rectangular glasses of different sizes and steel framework, where watermark glass and proper blank space offer people wide vision while keep the privacy. The exterior eversion window is both beautiful and practical.
