Tokyo Pizza is a new Japanese/Italian fusion restaurant in West London, and we were appointed to design their new premises. We worked with the client’s team from the very beginning, using the design of the space to drive the formulation of the company brand itself.
Situated in an abandoned basement, the design centres on the main dining area with open-kitchen and bar which benefits from natural light, with smaller, darker spaces branching off for either back of house, or more intimate dining situated in what were the building’s coal sheds.
Drawing material inspiration from contemporary Japanese design, we deployed a highly textured palette that includes charred Accoya (known as Shou Sugi Ban), concrete rendered walls and ribbed tiling, all complimented by sharp bespoke elements such as the brass and aluminium drinks display unit and marble bar.
The space is designed to be raw yet welcoming, and to provide a unique experience in keeping with the unique food on offer.
