Tokyo Confidential

We designed a bar that will be a place for socializing that transcends nationality, gender, guests, and bartenders.
The space was designed with this concept in mind.
The main bar counter, is the center of the space, a free space where guests and bartenders can come and go without any difference in their standing positions, by removing the difference in floor level between the inside and outside of the counter. The flat counter and cocktail stations make the bar feel as if bartenders and guests are all sitting around a single dining table.
The materials used for the bar are old timbers that were used as beams in a temple over 300 years ago; there are also traces of the building’s former use, such as timber holes.In addition, old wood, plaster, and brass are used in various places, combining textures that change with time. Artwork and objects brought in from various countries create a mysterious space “at home”, casual, textured, and luxurious space. The balcony and roof top are open to the public. The illuminated Tokyo Tower is seem, reminding visitors that they are in Tokyo.
A new place has been created where people from all over the world can enjoy the Tokyo nightlife.

その場を作る中心となる、大きなメインのバーカウンターは、通常のバーにあるカウンター内外の床の段差を取り払い、客とバーテンダーの立ち位置の差を作らず互いに行き来できる自由な空間とした。またカウンターとカクテルステーションの天板をフラットな設計にすることで、バーテンダーやゲストが皆で一つの食卓を囲むように感じる構成になっている。 素材は300年以上前に寺の梁材として使われていた古材を用い手おり、ほぞ穴などの建物だった頃の跡が散見される。
