The architecture of Shinjuku Japan and an innovative combination of soft texture and rigid space informs Hong-Kong based 4N Architects’ interior design for the Kowloon Saboten, part of a restaurant chain expanding throughout Asia.

“The design conveys a sense of purity and integrity of principle design elements, epitomizes the sophistication of traditional Japanese architecture.” says 4N. “This is even so slightly exotic and mysterious, yet comforting at the same time.”

“There is a clear relationship between rich texture and space. We draw on the red and timber color that serves as key element in the concept, decorated with the Nautical-style rope curtains that hang from ceiling to floor add a touch of contemporary elegance.”

“We also applied timber in order to emphasize the continuity of ceiling panels through the window-side setting, diners may sit back and relax on the earth-tone sofa and booth seats while overlooking the hassle city-life through glazing. The seating arrangement was intentionally planned in a rigid manner, and the Quatrefoil mahogany style pattern signifies the sparkling and moving forward progressively.”
