Design of a 2,800 sf restaurant expansion in Jackson, MI. The corian counter folds to bench seating as a continuous band connecting the entry to dining. Likewise, the whitewashed pine wall slips past the dining room to the kitchen entrance. Both moments work to connect spaces through the effort of the white band. The pine wall wrap is bound in contrast by dark tile flooring and an acoustically treated ceiling. The sushi kitchen and bar are carved out of the white band, framing the active kitchen as a dining experience.
