Muscat, Oman 2014
Architecture – Project Management
Serving modern Asian cuisine, ZEN Bistro in the Avenues Mall is designed around a show sushi counter, and four seating zones. The relatively narrow space was configured to allow for private seating zones and ample space within the heavy duty kitchen, which is hidden in the center of the space. Circulation of production, service and the scale of the seating zones were the primary factors. Dressed in modern Asian elements, the scale of the seating areas proved quite successful, with the private booths almost always full.
The selection of materials and large scale modern prints were crucial to achieve the attention-catching spirit of the restaurant.
