The Gion Japanese Restaurant by Studio Tands features a sleek and modern design that is the epitome of understated elegance. The sleek eatery was conceived by designer Koichi Shimohira of Studio Tands who aimed to create a relaxing haven for consumers that needed to get away from the stress of their busy lives.

This elegant restaurant is located in Haruyoshi, a neighbourhood that is adjacent to downtown Fukuoka, Japan and is a great example of strategic space planning for a compact interior.

The Gion Japanese Restaurant makes use of its limited square space that faces a busy urban street. The minimalist space features a 'large cutaway window that greets guests and that distances them from the hustle and bustle experienced outside'.

White volumes, discreet wood furnishings and a lack of ornamentation make this space stand apart for its sleek and modern design.
