This joint was originally a hot dog shop. The designer helped to convert this place to a Vietnamese bistro in just three months. A demolition permit was obtained in the very beginning stage. As the designer continued to complete the permit drawings, the contractors were already removing and demolishing unwanted equipments, flooring and partitions. Construction took about two months after all building permits were received. The creamy Chai and Vanilla colors were selected to enhance the diner’s appetites in order to promote sales. The use of halogen lights and soft led lights also help to soften the space up while giving it a causal and warm atmosphere. The simple and clean design gives this neighborhood shop a friendly character.
