SIZE:              130 sqm

ROLE:             Project Designer (under: StudioUnltd)

A new concept restaurant for Chef Shawn Pham in the downtown district of Little Tokyo.  This 130m space tucked underneath a parking structure underwent full renovation creating three different dining experiences.  The installation of a bespoke open kitchen allowed for guests to sit along the perimeter, experiencing and engaging  with the kitchen.  The restaurant also inlcuded more intimate dining space in a conservetry and a casual dining in the bar, while all co existing in one open space.  All decorative lighting and joinery was bespoke to the project and a local artist added textural softness to the exposed original concrete structure.
