Text description provided by the architects. The Taï Shogun Restaurant is a Japanese restaurant built in the city of Rennes, west of France, on the avenue François Mitterrand along the river Vilaine.

The restaurant takes place on a 105sqm triangular shaped plot, it’s a 3 levels building plus an attic, above a basement floor, accessibility is integrated from early sketches to enhance scheme design:

- The volume of the building arises from the respect for the authorized size. Three public floors are concentrated between the 100-year flood level (for ground floor) and the 8m above ground level required by the fire regulation for a building with non-enclosed staircases (for higher public floor). Structure is optimized to offer a 2,20m ceiling height on each floor to ensure accessibility for all.

- Each floor corresponds to a particular function: a bar on the ground floor, sushi’s conveyors on 1st and 2nd floor, a teppanyaki at attic level. A panoramic elevator takes place on the thinner part of the plot, it forms sign in the daytime and at night, and is accessible from street level. This entrance provides access to the entire restaurant.

Accessibility is not a constraint, it’s a way to qualify the building and reinforce its signal position, at the bow of the plot. It’s a small building, yet we pay attention to welcome all citizens.
