The restaurant designed by Thomas Schoos’s studio is one of the most sophisticated place in West Hollywood, CA. You can say it is as sensual and surprising as a paradise garden would be. The designer wanted to impart the essence of Japanese design without directly referencing specific Japanese culture. This was accomplish by maintaining simplicity and limited colors and textures, like the simplicity of a zen garden. Natural artifacts like live moss and large corals are used as art pieces, including coral fixtures in the ceiling that are lit from above and moss inside glass tables, giving the impression of dining on a flowing stream.
Fusion that “works” for both the chef and the patron.
Restaurant design is a specialty and a passion at Schoos.
