24.10.07Japanese restaurant Sakura House is in the popular Ozone section of Knox City shopping centre, famous for its bar and restaurant offers.
Sakura is owned and operated by Japanese, and offers authentic Japanese meals and snacks including teppanyaki, hot pots, sushi and sashimi and traditional Japanese beverages.
Studio Equator designed a complete brand identity and store fit out including logo, uniforms, stationery, menus, mural design, structural and decorative components and permit approvals.
As "Sakura" is the Japanese word for cherry blossom, we based our concept on cherry blossom time in Japan.
The finishes of the fit out illustrate this concept with natural and light timbers with splashes of red in the seating.
The layout of the restaurant is reminiscent of a traditional Japanese temple, with six metre doors leading in to the interior, and a sushi bar in place of an altar.
Our logo design is a modern take on the cherry blossom flower, and we also created beautiful illustrations to be used on graphic applications, and as large-scale illustrations and murals to complete the space.
