Contemporary Ramen
Project : Ramen Restaurant Location : Cerritos , California Architect : YNL Architects
For a new branch ramen store in Cerritos , California , YNL Architects created a space that beams modernity , simplicity , and elegance . Their work produced a restaurant that blends a contemporary , street-like environment with a hint of the traditional Japanese dining experience .
Colorful murals and paintings were paired with industrial-style lighting to create a radiant environment , while an assortment of rustic light bulbs hanging from the structure above both provides the required lighting for the main dining area and offers a gentle glow in lieu of typical fluorescent lights .
