A Wavy Tokyo Noodle Shop by ISSHO Architects

ISSHO Architects designed this curvaceous Tokyo noodle shop. The restaurant actually specializes in soba, not udon noodles. The exterior was meant to evoke a traditional Japanede townhouse and although the designers managed to capture this feeling, the building looks downright modern.

The Tokyo noodle shop's Machiya-style wooden louvers are what give it such a classical vibe. The sensation is recreated inside with a wavy white sectional ceiling. The shop's owner lives in a modest apartment above the restaurant. Stats for Undulating Udon Buildings Trending: Older & Chilly
