Japanese Restaurant and Bar

For a renowned three Michelin Star chef, SAS designed the conversion of two floors of a landmarked cast-iron structure into a 125-seat high end restaurant.

The design commands over 7,000 square feet of dining and cooking spaces and features two open kitchens as part of the dining experience. Within a large double-height space, a new 70-foot long dining mezzanine has been suspended from the greater building’s structure, creating a dramatic architectural feature while accommodating additional dining space.

Kaffe 1668

Approached by two young investors to develop a café and small bakery, SAS quickly converted a generic commercial space in Tribeca into a two-level café with a small kitchen.

Central to the design concept was the clients’ desire to create a space that felt “industrial”, yet still welcoming to customers. A tall space and open layout was proposed so that the café would feel modern and airy. However, a focus on patinized finishes and antique lighting helped create a less typically modern atmosphere. Smoked and tinted oak floors and furniture, along with oiled steel fixtures, are combined with warm leather and pale plaster to suggest a materiality from a different time. The clients selected antique chairs and lighting fixtures as a compliment to the architectural atmosphere.
