Kioku was designed by André Fu to bring the essence of a ‘modernist bamboo theatre’ to the space. It epitomises Fu’s trademark aesthetic for relaxed luxury, offering a holistic Japanese dining experience. Visitors to the restaurant approach it through a hallway lined with bamboo posts, inspired by the famous Torii Tunnel which leads to the mountain shrine in Kyoto. A bold ceramic artwork by Jun Kaneko, at the entrance, leads the eye upwards to a dramatic double height space. The focal point of the interior space is a vast 11m long sushi counter which has been carved out of solid pine timber trunks. (text by AFSO / André Fu)

The Former Rocks Police Station by Welsh + Major Architects, photo: Katherine Lu

Designed by Government Architect James Barnet in the early 1880’s, this imposing building has served many purposes over its lifetime, including for a long time, a police station, complete with holding cells. The adaptation as an elegant new café/restaurant creates a new chapter in the rich history of this significant building. An exercise in restrained and respectful design, Welsh + Major’s design celebrates the qualities of the original building and breathes life into the adjacent public domain.

The Jane, Restaurant lighting by .PSLAB

Housed in a red brick structure that used to be a chapel for a military hospital in the Groen Kwartier in Antwerp, ‘The Jane’ is the brainchild of Michelin Star Chef Sergio Herman and Nick Bril conceived with the collaboration of Piet Boon architects. With Piet Boon’s intent on investing in the artisanal feel of the existing historic chapel, propelling it forward with a contemporary underground atmosphere, .PSLAB was a natural choice as a collaborator.

After a very fast construction period of only two months a spectacular new pavilion shines in the heart of Rotterdam. Mei architects and planners designed this new McDonald’s pavilion on Coolsingel Rotterdam. The former kiosk was once voted the ugliest building in Rotterdam and no longer reflected the wishes and ambitions of either McDonald’s and the city of Rotterdam.

A 2000 square meter former sausage factory in Stockholm has undergone an extensive renovation to give place to the new Usine concept. The new space includes Bistro 38, Poche 36, café, take-away, reception and conference spaces.
