This new lounge restaurant opened in the up and coming neighborhood of Inwood on the northern tip of Manhattan. The area is similar to the Meat Packing District in lower Manhattan in that it was originally factories, warehouses and meat markets and now becoming a trendy area for restaurants and lounges. From the beginning we wanted an eclectic space in which art stands out. The design respects the existing architecture of the space with its spectacular wood beams that we choose to highlight. The idea was to design a rustic and sophisticated space while at the same time achieving a modern and classical look. The lounge is theatrical, elegant and sophisticated with an industrial look that uses many metal materials found typically in urban art and architecture. The inspiration of this lounge was the meat packing district and its great designs such as the Buddakan restaurant, designed by the Frenchman Christian Liagre.
