The Momofuku Restaurant is located in Toronto, Canada. It was completed in 2012 and it’s designed by Canadian architects and interior designers The Design Agency. The luxury restaurant has quickly become a landmark for those that enjoy good wine and beautiful architecture. With a total surface of 6,600 square feet, the restaurant spreads on three levels. The design chosen for this project is a combination of Asian influence with local elements and New York flair.
The interior of the restaurant is framed by glass and resembles an ice cube. The entrance is market by an impressive stainless steel structure designed by Chinese artist Zhang Huan. The sculpture measures 33 feet in height and it’s 65 feet long. It resembles a twisting root and can even look like a dragon from a certain angle.
The restaurant’s interior is divided into several zones. The ground floor contains the Noodle Bar. It’s a double height space with white oak walls and steel stairs and bridges. A colorful painting of the Madison Square Gardens creates a connection between this restaurant and the original New York Noddle Bar.
The second floor has a design similar to that of the ground level. The walls are wrapped in oak and here you can find a bar and lounge area with sliding doors and a private and more intimate atmosphere. Asian influences meet local retro elements in a beautiful mix. The third floor is a more transparent space with panoramic views. Here there’s a black oak bar, a Chinese-style round table and several other seating options.
