Maedaya Grill & Sake


This project demonstrates the possibility of using ordinary recyclable material for hospitality projects without compromising the sophistication of the food and service. Traditionally sake is bottled in wooden casks and secured with ropes. Current commercial method of bottling sake is similar to that of red or white wine – now commonly available in twist tops. Their interest in sake bottling lies in the bounding of the cask using ropes. Thereafter they chose to investigate and translate their interpretation of ‘bounding’ with the use of Manila ropes. The ropes held in tension at specific points form a shape of a house or a hut. A house, whether it be a tea house or sake house is a sacred place in traditional Japanese times. It is a place whether people drank in harmony. via
