A refined take on Japanese cuisine, with a modern intimate experience. A highly functional design with a clean presentation inspired by Japanese minimalist sensibilities.
Sumi Open Kitchen was born out of a vision from Giles ( Head Chef ) and Tomoko Hohnen. In order for Giles to bring his own style of fine Japanese food culture to the Sunshine Coast in a very cozy 30m2 tenancy, utilising space in the most effective way possible was at the forefront of every decision. Every space, every corner, every piece of equipment and furnishing all contributed to the diners experience and workflow of the kitchen staff. In order to maintain the aesthetic without hindering workability in the compressed form factor and open nature of the kitchen, a lot of customised specification and meticulous attention to details during planning and construction.
"...I enjoyed my experience designing and building Sumi Open Kitchen. To see my ideas come to reality on such a grand scale was exciting. Much attention to detail was required in creating this original restaurant and now it stands as a testament - combining form and function. Hiller takes full responsibility of supply, design, budget, and build time. Their after sales service has also been flawless" Giles Hohnen - Owner & Head Chef of Sumi Open Kitchen
