Koichi Takada Architects has been finished The Cave Restaurant in Sydney, Australia. Koichi Takada Architects seeks to develop unique and innovative designs that attract inspiration from the processes of nature.
We intend to turn the way we eat and blather in a restaurant. The acoustic quality of the restaurant assist to the cozy and enjoy the dining experience.
We have experimented with noise levels in connection to the pleasant of dining and the ambience a cave like environment can make. The timber profiles awaken a sound studio atmosphere, and a comfort ‘noise’ of dining conversation, proposing a more familiar experience as well as a visually interesting and complex surrounding.
The series of acoustic curvatures were tested and expanded with computer modelling and each ‘timber grain’ profile has been translated and cut from computer-generated 3-D data, applying Computer Numerical Control (CNC) technology. [Via]
