Tree Inspired Restaurant Design

While exploring some of the other innovations in green design on the Contemporist, we found this wonderful design for a restaurant in Sydney from Koichi Takada Architects. The center of the restaurant is designed to look like a giant tree, inspired by the cherry trees that the architects are so familiar with.

The space has a natural and organic feel to it thanks to the tree design, while still maintaining the simple and chic lines of a modern space. As you can see from the picture, guests at the bar can feel that they truly are sitting under the branches of a giant tree towering over them while they enjoy a martini or an appetizer.

As nature becomes more and more important to architects around the world, more firms are getting inventive with their creative use of not only eco-friendly products, but design itself as found in nature. What do you think of this trend?
