Hong Kong-based firm MOA Designs has recently finished work on a contemporary Japanese restaurant in Pacific Place

Taking over from a former Japanese Robata Grill, Kokomi has been designed as a casual space, offering an open and spacious dining experience on the lower floor of Pacific Place in Admiralty. The design team has incorporated a myriad of elements derived from a traditional Japanese folk house into the restaurant that help to create an elegant yet dynamic interior.

Diners are welcomed through a semi-transluscent noren, or Japanese screen, upon arrival, and next to this entrance is the sushi bar counter. Chefs make sushi behind this bar while customers can relax and hang out. The bar top is constructed of a solid wooden block, captivating a certain Japanese aesthetic, while two layers of wire mesh panels above create a unique lighting effect throughout the area.

Inside, tables with teppanyaki grills dominate the inner dining section with the surrounding walls finished with reddish brown timber panels. Set behind the long banquette at the rear of the restaurant is a feature wall of sandblasted grey granite tiles, rough chiseled natural stone slats and raw iron strips, accented with criss-crossed lighting effect.
