Sanbiki Japanese Kitchen

Design inspiration for Sanbiki, a busy, Japanese restaurant located in downtown Kamloops, was found through a desire to create a relaxed and open atmosphere that also showcased distinct Japanese building features and wood details.

Our challenge was to integrate an open kitchen while being mindful of traffic flow, comfort and visibility.

It was also important to the restaurant owner, who is the head chef, to prepare traditional Japanese cuisine in an open and visible way, and maintain interaction with customers as they entered and left the restaurant, and as they enjoyed their meals.
