A Japanese restaurant in the downtown of Los Angeles


The top floor of a building in downtown Los Angeles was designed by
Tag Front, and split in two spaces to make room for a lounge called
Elevate and for a Japanese restaurant called Takami.
The top floor
offers incredible views of downtown Los Angeles and the designers had to
create two contemporary spaces that would complement each other.The entrance of the Japanese restaurant is made of beautiful
kimono-fabric panels that lead you to the host/hostess stand. After this
beautiful entrance you are led towards the restaurant bar which has a
glass wine room and the wood-slat ceiling was a stroke of genius. The
bar is adorned with Japanese fabric panels on the front of the structure
that have end-grain mesquite top.Another thing that you notice is the wall behind the bar that is made
of back-lit aluminum with a sleek patina finish and circular holes
placed randomly.

 As interior design for the lounge area they designers
chose monkey stool and a jakara root table. The design was kept in
traditional lines for the main dining area: custom furniture with robata
and sushi bar. These two bars are separated by the wall made of back
lit aluminum that has a very interesting pattern: random circular holes
spread over the patina finish.

 Moving on to the other space, the lounge called Elevate has an elevator
in the foyer that allows access to this place. The foyer has a wood
panel wall and the design of the lounge is intriguing,it reminds us of
falling leaves. The indoor and outdoor space here seems to fade out,
being a bit tricky to separate the two.A pocket door system installed by
the designers makes the walls seem smaller and the overall effect draws
attention towards the ceiling.Ceramic tile panels hide the glass panel
