We are the design architect for this growing fast-casual powerhouse, developing a new architectural language for welcoming, efficient restaurants. The project includes a new material palette and fixture concepts, as well as a re-imagined storefront. The primary materials -- charred wood, hot rolled steel, raku ceramics -- are inspired by heat and fire, key elements for the client's stir-fry menu, and are designed to withstand wear and tear.
In conjunction with local architect of record Streetsense we have designed over a dozen unique locations for the brand.
