In order to preserve the original medieval beauty of the building, the architect Rudolf Netík made the original Art Nouveau style and the marble interior with minimal adjustment and maximum storage; preserved the original historical aesthetics of the space. In addition, it also contains works of art that existed in it, such as the sculptures of Jan Štursa. In the architectural design, it is the first to establish the foundation of new and old blending, and then inject modern details into the interior of the restaurant, and customize and simplify the furniture lighting in the space, not only does not interfere with the original style of the building, but also has a more trendy design. In addition, the open kitchen transparently processes all the preparations and reverses the role of the waiter, as if each meal is served by the chef himself. The existence of the restaurant itself is not unusual. Kantýna is unique in that the founding team Ambiente wants to reverse the function and impression of the “restaurant” itself, and instead adopt a one-stop composite service; from the butcher shop, canteen, to steak restaurant, The three-point world is connected to each other in a way that gives the restaurant a new definition. Imagine that when the butcher and the chef are only one step away, the fresh meat can be instantly supplied to the kitchen; when the restaurant opens the kitchen door and welcomes the hackers next to it, you will know exactly where the meat in your mouth comes from. And the relatives of the food cooking process - taste buds will also get more than the delicious peace of mind and trust. It is worth mentioning that in order to make this success reversing the retro impression and translating into a contemporary design brand, the local people are deeply impressed.

The iconic vision of the restaurant sparkles in harmony with the old-fashioned look of the old bank. The restaurant opened its doors, as if the transformation of the Kantýna restaurant was officially completed, and the old man was expected to come to the door.

Create a green forest in the city: Madrid OJALÁ restaurant

By

Come to Madrid in the summer, Sunshine tapas snacks, Sangria bartenders, perhaps the only thing you feel is missing is the beach. However, there is a restaurant that places sand and waves like crystal lattices in the heart of the city – OJALÁ in the Malasana district. Known as one of the most popular areas in Madrid, Malasana's unique hippie tone accommodates a wide variety of ethnic groups, with a variety of specialty shops scattered among them, especially the collection of many second-hand shops. The price of the people can dig into many accidents. Treasures; a young, diverse and creative atmosphere makes this an ideal neighborhood for friends. OJALÁ is no less inferior to the surrounding stores, blue-green and radiant, like a sea wave, bringing a cool summer to the inland Madrid. Designed by local construction team Andre Jaques, OJALÁ tries to reflect the social diversity of its region through spatial style. Therefore, OJALÁ is more like an inland fascinating sea view, not just a building; the owner's idea is in line with Andre Jaques's design philosophy. In modern times, culture is no longer produced in an isolated environment, but in the connection as a network. Andre Jaques intends to explore the cultural role that architecture plays in society through various spaces; he likes to pay attention to how people use space spontaneously, and to plan and imagine various activities in the design. Although it is a restaurant storefront, many of Andre Jaques's interesting ideas are reflected in OJALÁ's space; he creates a different conversational experience between OJALÁ and the space: meeting, dining, and entertainment. Like the large wooden table shared by the guests and the clerk, it has the function of a bar and is wider and more comfortable than the bar; the seat design at the corner of the window encourages strangers who are also greedy with the sun to sit side by side and open the dialogue; or, along the stairs Going to the basement, there is no sun shining, but it is full of soft beaches.

The entire room is like a shutter, condensing the last moment of the beach scene before the evening, and with a slowly changing music and neon light, spend a night in a unique summer atmosphere. Chef Javier Brichetto creates simple but refined dishes for the restaurant, like the Gazpacho tomato cold soup that is perfect for summertime, and even boldly adds watermelon to create a new taste, making OJALÁ a space and taste experiment. In fact, every ordinary space is covered with a variety of social relationships; in this huge container, such as Andre Jaques...

have a drink! In the winding belly of the snake: Montenegro IZAKAYA KINOYA Izakaya

By

After a hard day's hard work, put on a coat, and bring up a briefcase, like a familiar walk on the way home; squatting on the little song, pushing the squeaky sliding door, walking through the narrow passage of the voice, not each other I met and still nodded and smiled. A pot of sake, two dishes of cabbage, the dim light on the tiny face, a sigh of relief, as if the fatigue of the day is eliminated. The traditional Japanese izakaya is such a feeling, providing a comfortable resting environment for the busy petty bourgeoisie. No matter who is coming from or where they come from, they can find a place in their own shop without any bias. It is the spirit of the "Izakaya". Today, izakaya has become popular, prevalent in the world, and even popular in Montreal, Canada. Designed by Canadian interior designer Jean de Lessard, IZAKAYA KINOYA's Japanese Izakaya is located on the streets of the "Romantic Capital" of Montreal, a popular restaurant and bar in recent years. The overflowing Japanese style and French culture, intertwined into a fast-paced Japanese performance song in a small store, adds a lot of oriental feelings to the rich Latin atmosphere. The design of the KINOYA restaurant combines the aesthetics, functionality and spirit of a traditional izakaya. First, the design team Jean de Lessard used an ingenious design in the restaurant's exterior: cutting out the look of the restaurant with snake-like lines, making the eye-catching building itself a prominent landmark in the area. The interior of the izakaya uses the wood of the local barn. It is specially decorated without the special decoration. Instead, it retains the original texture of the logs, which makes the overall space more rough and beautiful. With the excellent resonance absorption of the wood, the wood of different thickness is selected. The irregular angles are boldly cut, deflecting the sound waves and helping to eliminate ambient noise. This multi-angle, irregular geometric decoration makes the restaurant feel a little "not neat", so that people can unload their hearts and enter the food and wine after leaving the cold office. In addition, in order to continue the tradition of Japanese izakaya, Japanese paintings and banners and flags are also used on the walls, and the beer pulls of the bar are like samurai swords to create a signature Oriental style. If it weren't for the local local diners, I really thought that I had inadvertently broke into the lanes of Shinjuku and prepared to have a drink. "A space, whether it is a work or an emotion, must form its own strength." Design team Jean De Lessard upholds this belief and deliberately creates a sturdy, even "oppressive" type. The meeting space allows each table to be arranged in a fairly close manner; with a multi-angled ceiling, the interior space creates a "worm-like" image, accompanied by wine and food, trying to bring people closer together. The distance makes the izakaya a private space for people to treat intimately. IZAKAYA KINOYA unites the West and the Eastern culture, colliding in a fun way, successfully creating a conflicting and harmonious dining atmosphere, and letting it become a special late-night scenery in the local area since its opening. IZAKAYA KINOYA 4250, Rue Saint-Denis, Montreal, Quebec H2J 2K8, Canda Opening Hours: Tue-Wed/ 12:00 pm-03:00 pm, 05:00...
