Inspired by a text-printed mark, Asterisk by SAKO Architects is a building that seems to serve as a reference to the experience delivered inside. Containing a restaurant, the five-winged structure separates its diverse program in a logical way that expresses itself with aesthetic enthusiasm.
Nestled into the countryside near Beijing, China, the project houses a central hallway, kitchens, a primary dining room, private function rooms and a wine showroom in different branches that extend outwards into a star-shaped plan. They merge beneath the drama of a wood-slatted ceiling through which sunlight pours from a skylight above.
Asterisk by SAKO Architects is clad in dark timber for a natural beauty. Despite its obviously calculated configuration, the building blends into is beautiful surroundings and reflects gorgeously across the glassy lake.
