Drozdov & Partners have taken 'Yaske' Sushi Bar from the pragmatic level of 'edifice' to the poetic category of 'sculpture'. They started off with the old modernist idea of the total penetration of internal space into the exterior. What lends Yaske landmark quality, however, are not the fully glazed fa├žades of the rectangular ground-floor volume (toilets, kitchen and service rooms being the only interior areas hidden from view), but rather the striking contrast between the gentle transparency of this volume and the monumental impenetrability that characterizes all the surrounding buildings. The second defining feature of Yaske's striking appearance is the karaoke room on its upper level. This ellipsoid volume, raised on three slanting piers, is conceived as a contrast to the lower regular volume, in form and because of its more private character. At night the ellipse undermines the modernist honesty of the building: its supports vanish so that it appears to hover in clouds of light.
