The wood makes Read more […]

El Japonez Restaurant by Cherem Serrano Arquitectura

Cherem Serrano Arquitectura projected a large open space full of light where vegetation is incorporated in an original way. El Japonez restaurant is like a glass box sited in the middle of an urban landscape with a natural living wall, which runs the entire length of the restaurant. The presence of wood contributes to the game of shapes and textures through the use of 10x10cm cubes that welcomes the guests, continues through the ceiling and ends covering the entire bar.
