Just a few minutes walk from Tokyo's Kawaguchi Station Grillno is a small, cozy 26-seat restaurant run by a close friend of architect KEIJI ASHIZAWA who designed the interior

Since the owner began his career as a chef, KEIJI ASHIZAWA has always accompanied him in the design of his restaurants. For this restaurant, only a few raw materials were used, expertly crafted by artisans to achieve a relaxing atmosphere to match the food and hospitality

Grillno is a restaurant that specializes in smoked and grilled dishes, so the idea was to leave the kitchen open with a long concrete counter around it so that people can admire the chef as he cooks. Along with the counter, a long light suspended in steel was also designed in order to evenly illuminate the dining area

Guiding the design was the concept that good restaurants should be able to accommodate people in many situations: alone, in groups of friends, and with families. To make the most of the space, a variety of seating arrangements were designed. A long countertop table with a rounded end so 3-4 people can sit, a few tables for two or four, and a sofa
