Projects Yamazaki Kentaro Design Workshop

Itoman Gyomin Syokudo
Yamazaki Kentaro Design Workshop

The Itoman Gyomin Shokudo, located in Itoman, Okinawa was conceived with the aim of supporting and promoting the local tradition and culture through its cuisine. The restaurant is covered in Ryukyu limestone and was constructed as part of a "masonry workshop" organized by the project collaborators. The fishermen in Itoman often constructed their own fishery grounds by hand using Ryukyu limestone. For this reason, we adopted the traditional construction method of "Nozura-Zatsuzumi" to construct the facade with the help of local workshop participants. Using the techniques of their ancestors they have imbued the structure with the pride and love of fishermen.
