Concept

小さな空間から生まれる和み
“ななや”では、オーナーの熱いスピリッツを感じ受け、ゆっくり料理を味わい、酒をたのしみ、話がはずむ、そしていつの間にか気持ちよく酔っているような、このうえなく居心地のよいお店をイメージしながら、空間を構成していきました。客が店を選ぶ時はちょっとドキドキさせて、店の前でガラス越しに店内のにぎわいを感じさせる。スタッフの接客は、礼儀正しく親しみやすく。カウンターの手触りはこんな質感で、隣の客との距離感はこれぐらいが和む。カウンター越しに見えるバック棚の光は品よく主張し過ぎないように。人と人の視線はこんな関係が落ち着く。もちろん料理は、ほどよいタイミングで出てきてほしい。お客様の色で溢れる空間だから、色彩はひかえめに。テーブル席の空気感はこんな感じが盛り上がる。光はそっとやさしく包み込むように…。33才だった「私が行きたい小料理屋」をつくらせていただきました。

Contentment born of a snug little space
When composing the space, I imagined being uplifted by the proprietor's warm spirit, casually savoring the food, enjoying sake, and indulging in lively banter, and before long being pleasantly inebriated in a shop that could not be any more comfortable. Customers feel a little anticipation when deciding whether to come in or not, and they can feel the liveliness beyond the window as they glance in from outside. Staff are warm and friendly, and perfectly well mannered. The feel of the counter under your hand, and the sense of distance between you and the customer sitting next to is just right to give that feeling of contentment. The illumination of the back shelf on the other side of the counter is not over-emphasized, giving a refined feel. The human atmosphere is relaxed and comforting as peoples' gazes interact. Of course, you want the food to be presented with just the right timing. The space overflows with the vibrance of the customers, so colors are used moderately. The mood at the table seats is just right to create that festive feel. Lighting delicately enfolds the space... I created "the little restaurant that I wanted to visit" when I was 33.
