Kengo Kuma & Associate design the Mikuni Izu Kogen panoramic restaurant in Shizuoka

The Mikuni Izu Kogen restaurant designed by the Kengo Kuma & Associate studio is located in a panoramic position on a cliff overlooking the Sagami Bay, on Japan’s Izu Peninsula. For the project, for which it was necessary to reconcile the architecture and the complex topography of the site, the Kengo Kuma firm used a traditional Japanese construction method known as kakezukuri. Thanks to special supports, the kakezukuri method makes it possible to build on steep slopes. A famous example of this method is the ancient Otowasan Kiyomizu-dera Temple in Kyoto.
