Plenty of natural daylight shows off this fresh, inviting restaurant design that’s bursting with foliage, colors, and texture. Using the east-facing locale to full advantage, a vertical wall garden also graces the entrance.
Spread over two floors, the design emphasizes clean lines and a modern aesthetic. The carefully curated minimalistic backdrop allows patrons to focus on the dishes in front of them.
Brick walls, exposed duct pipes, and concrete flooring also adds a touch of industrial charm. There’s thoughtfully considered elements too, including a combination of deep seating arrangements and tastefully lit banquettes to encourage longer dwell times.
A facade of black stucco paint and French windows enables the restaurant to stand out from its place between two fashion retail stores, each displaying brightly-colored shopfronts.
