Working within a very tight budget, this Vietnamese/Chinese restaurant thrives in a previously drab restaurant space in Brookline, Massachusetts.

Project Overview

Custom artwork and a rich color palette integrate the walls, woodwork, and upholstery. The large mural of Vietnamese fishing boats and mountains enlivens the space and brings customers in from outside.

Many furnishings and fixtures have been reused. The backs and seats of booths have been reupholstered to coordinate with existing booth frames. Existing low walls have been topped with sandblasted glass.

Lighting and street visibility has been enhanced, and traffic flow through the restaurant has been improved. New bamboo roofs rise over key access points.
