the windows, usually "the least desirable
place, became the most desirable" thanks to
beach cabanas raised up on a platform, says
Ashen, offering guests views of the entire
restaurant and the ocean beyond.
Bar Olón, meanwhile, offers a casual
entry into the formal restaurant, highlighted
by a custom wall installation of teal vintageinspired fans, "an iconic element that
draws you through" the space, notes Ashen.
Exaggerated, oversized leather winged
lounge chairs and bongo drums hanging
from the ceiling provide eye-catching
theatrical elements with Latin flair while
allowing the area to keep "the level of
sophistication that's right for Garces," and
his brand, adds Ashen.
Drastically different and unexpected,
Okatshe is a mysterious, moody hideaway,
with a brightly colored Japanese candy
storefront façade veiling the sushi restaurant
within. A concealed door opens to a dimly
lit, back alley-inspired space informed by the

streets of Tokyo's Shinjuku neighborhood
and illuminated by Japanese street signs.
"It kind of freaks you out the first time you
go in," says Ashen. Openings in the streetlike wall reveal sushi and sake bars and
open kitchens, while the space is filled with
concrete communal tables and booths lined
by graphic murals from visual and street
artists Yok & Sheryo that capture the chaos
and beauty of the streets and alleys of Tokyo.
Creating distinct looks for three
separate venues simultaneously was
certainly a challenge. The team, says
Ashen, had to make sure that "the thread
of one didn't bleed into the other," while
allowing transitions between spaces to feel
intentional. "Every project is a little bit of a
Rubik's Cube and you're trying to find the
right pattern to solve the puzzle, and there's
no right way-it's just about finding the right
formula." hd
