T0 Sumibi Yakiniku | Shibuyanaka Sushi
The overall design for T0 Japanese cuisine brand is inspired by five Chinese elements - namely metal, wood, water, fire, and earth - which coincide with their different series of products. Through one entrance, there are two dining zones, and the water and fire concept is respectively adopted in T0 Shibuya Naka Sushi | Charcoal-grilled meat restaurant, an establishment combining OMAKASE sushi and charcoal fire roasts. First, for the fusion of two elements, the designers borrowed the concept of the traditional Japanese architectural wooden frame structure to build up and divide the interior space. Additionally, two circulations for sushi (water) and yakiniku (fire) are arranged in an irregular layout, with different dining zones also distinguished by different floor heights. Two zones are divided by a bidirectional glass wine cabinet in the middle, which can be opened at both sides and enables either zone to be seen from the other side. By means of “creating spaces within a space”, the firm also embedded private dining rooms into the space, where layers of space achieved through different floor heights, a collision of different textured materials, a variety of lighting design, circulations in a variety of orientations, and changing scenery, and movement between open and enclosed spaces all contribute to a fascinating sense of oriental mystery.

No project more thoroughly incorporates the complexity of Sollertia’s specialized expertise than the firm’s commission as part of a major renovation of Montreal’s Biodome, a science museum immersing visitors in a diversity of delicate ecosystems. While the demands of the project pushed the firm to its limits, Sollertia rose to meet every challenge head on, and to expand the boundaries of their discipline. The project’s scale of complexity drew on multiple areas of expertise, and Sollertia embarked on a journey to design and install membranes to form the facility’s transit corridors and transition spaces between the various ecosystems. Drawing upon past experiences working on projects facilities in the Biodome’s surrounding Olympic complex, the Sollertia team developed a series of different prototypes before working closely with KANVA, lead architects of the project, to select the perfect balance of materiality, flexibility, and durability for the project.
