Architect Chikara Ohno, who heads up the Tokyo-based architecture and interior design studio sinato, recently completed +green, an organic restaurant in Komazawa. +green (pronounced “and green”) opened their doors to the public on April 1, 2011.

As you enter the restaurant you pass through the open terrace for outdoor seating, a deli/café for takeout orders and an organic grocery store, all on the ground level. Restaurant seating is located a level below and is defined by a warm, natural brick façade with natural light flowing into the space. I like how it serves as a contrast to the stark, white walls of the ground level, while still feeling connected via the open floor-plan and skylight. If you’re in the area, check it out!
