Q&A

How does the design of your space (or an element of the design) impact the experiences people have there?

"The Chef and owner of the space has a heroic story of survival and immigration and the woven fabrics of his culture is expressed in his food. The atmosphere within the restaurant had to reflect and compliment this. For weeks, I combed the streets of Vietnam to find just the right decor to create a feeling, an emotional vibe that reflects the heart of Vietnam and the hard working people who live there. I sourced ornate hand-made iron screen doors of varied shapes and sizes and refinished to showcase them as stunning copper room-dividers that add depth and dimension to the space. 'A hint of Asia' is reflected in the custom coat closet with refurbished iron doors or the defined entry way lined by iron railings brought back from the streets of Saigon bring an authentic feeling that compliments the cuisine."
