Kochi Takada tackling noise in the Cave

Cave restaurant that is.


Have you ever gone to a really cool restaurant on a day out. Great atmosphere, great food, even great service but you couldn’t hear the people you were with. Okay top that you couldn’t hear yourself think.

On one hand you know this place must have good food since so many people are here but being able to call there waiter without doing the Mexican wave on your able is also a bonus.


Well these guys are trying to create a design that deals with acoustic sound and creates a beautiful and unique eating environment. I just love the flow of the curve walls. If it does work like it should probably be a cosy, muffled dinning experience where you aren’t bombarded by the noise from the party of fifteen at the end of the restaurant. We wish them all the best but we are paying for our night out and deserve a great night too. Am I right?🍴;)
