Circus is a restaurant that is also a venue for cabaret style acts, where the staff become the performers with the diners. The main dining table brings theatrical presence to the restaurant, as it doubles as a stage, with stairs at either end. The building once housed the animals which performed at the Royal Opera House.

Nominated for the Bathroom Design Awards 2010, this project exists as one open space where several functions have been put into freestanding objects. The kitchen and wardrobe are placed near the entrance and combined into one single volume.
The bath and bedroom is hidden in a volume which is placed at back of the house. From the open living area you look alongside the volume towards the vertical garden and the entrance stairs to the roof terrace. The view on the green wall holds a promise in itself which will be redeemed once you enter the bed/bathroom.
The panorama on the overgrown plantwall and the contrast with the minimalistic white bed/bathroom provides an intense experience. Integration of nature is an important aspect of traditional culture in Japan, the homeland of the client.
