Wayla

On the contrary to Little Wayla upstairs, this downstairs sit-down Thai restaurant inherits an intimate, cozy and night market feeling. Creating spatial moments that speaks to spending an evening at a local night market in Thailand and ending the day at a Speakeasy in a hidden cellar in New York City. The Wayla has clean modern lines influenced by its sister Eatery restaurant upstairs but mixed in with rich, honest and familiar material palette and flair.

Interior is dim and warm, with tones of reclaimed walnut, blackened steel, brass and existing exposed brick walls. The restaurant is divided into three main areas: the bar (at the entrance), booths seating, a long banquette at the back and continues with an outdoor dining space. 

Responsibility: concept moodboard, design development, FF&E
