Named Izakaya Kinoya, this bright bar & restaurant located in Montreal, Canada is known as one of the most inspiring works of Jean de Lessard. Taking inspiration from the primary spirit, function and aesthetics of the izakaya, an informal place where people drink beer and sake, Jean de Lessard creatively transformed the restaurant into a comfortable, eye-catching and exciting space for guests to hang out with their friends.
“For a space to become Event or Emotion, it must generate its own energy. I designed an enclosed space that is totally focused on the business of partying. The design elements are deliberately oppressive or aggressive, so that it is anarchic, rough and where we are loudly heckled.”, said the architect.
