Inami Koro Udon Restaurant and Shop

Tetsuya Matsumoto

Architecture, Building and Structure Design Inami Koro Udon Restaurant and Shop by Tetsuya Matsumoto How can architecture represent a culinary concept? The Edge of the Wood is an attempt to respond to this question. Inami Koro is reinventing the traditional Japanese Udon dish while keeping the common techniques for preparation. The new building reflects their approach by revisiting the traditional Japanese wooden constructions. All contour lines expressing the shape of the building were simplified. This includes the glass frame hidden inside the thin wooden pillars, the roof and ceiling inclination rotated, and the edges of vertical walls all being expressed by a single line.
