Zenshi's Yuki Itoda's paintings cover the entire wall of one restaurant's seating area.

Arataniurano's Go Watanabe has installed a work in the entrace to the women's toilets.Light pieces by Jo Nagasaka from Sschemata Architectural Office, which works in collaboration with Aoyama | Meguro, illuminate this corridor.

To the right of the men's toilets, work by Mujin-to Production's artist collective 'Chim↑Pom'.

The 'Atelier Room' features paintings by several artists from several galleries, such as Misako & Rosen's Maya Hewitt.

The 'Salon Room', which looks like something out of the final scenes of '2001: A Space Odyssey', also features a variety of work from different artists, including video work by Yuka Sasahara Gallery's Mami Kosemura.
