Traveling to Shanghai could place you face to face with friends in an amazing Japanese barbecue restaurant where people can isolate themselves from the busy city life and enjoy an energizing meal with friends or family. The Yakiniku Master Restaurant is the fifth one opened by the brand in Shanghai and its interiors were sculpted by Taiwan designer Lee Hsuheng of Golucci International Design.
Spreading over 350 square meters, the restaurant is a contemporary definition of the old Shanghai style, with recycled wooden pieces adorning the walls and different shades constructing a modern revival of the original building’s structure. Two separate dining areas display inspiring styles – one showcases Western-style shutters, while the other focuses on exposing Shikumen Chinese red brick walls.
“The recycled wood pieces are reshaped and used to decorate the red bricks, presenting a mottled color wall, coupled with charcoal that has been used in previous stores, demonstrating the image and characteristics of yakiniku (Japanese BBQ). Therefore, the design integrates simplicity and complexity, traditional and contemporary methods to showcase a rich and colorful landscape.”
