This is a new branch of the local famous Japanese noodle restaurant, Shyo Ryu Ken at Kyobashi, Osaka.

There are a business district and downtown area around this place.The theme of this shop is to provide a gathering place for the local community. That’s why its appearance is open to the sideway, not like traditional closed structure.

Inspired by Nagaya (a traditional Japanese tenement house) style, there are different shapes of triangle roofs inside the shop and each table under the roof is looks like a dining room of each customer. Yet one side of the each cell is wide open to the center of the shop and it connects customer with friendly staffs, cooks in the kitchen and other customers.

Where“house within a house” element comes from

There are some building codes on the under a railroad overpass constructions, therefore all the shops tend to look all the same. I wanted to defy the stereotype and tried to pursuit the new-look at this limited environment.




「京橋 昇龍軒」のにぎやかな井戸端の単位が、人や車、自転車が無数に往来するカオスな大阪の下町環境と混ざり合い、この地域全体のにぎやかさが増すよう設計しています。
