Client had a vision of creating a casual and timeless Japanese dining space in the heart of Sydney CBD. The design of a 65m2 fitout, Izakaya Michi focuses on creating a canvas where the food is the hero.

Neutral timber palette was used throughout the design to connect and to complement the existing brickwork. This also limited the ‘distraction’ inside the tenancy by using uniform colour of the timber - giving the centre-stage to the hero of the project - the food.

The feature ceiling challenges the boundaries of the term ‘ceiling’ - as it starts as a ceiling, which then flows down along the wall into a piece of furniture transitioning from the aluminium material in the ceiling, seamlessly into natural timber dowels at the areas where patrons can touch and feel.
