Chinatown, Spring 2017
A plant based Mexican restaurant located in the Lower East Side. The ambience channels its Mexican-inspired roots, with pops of color, fresh greens, and plenty of contemporary moments. Drawing inspiration to the feeling of a Mother’s home, Clear Studios presented ideas for round edges, bright and vibrant colors, and diverse textures. During construction, the site revealed historical detail from the early 1900s. The original penny tile mosaic on wall & floor became leading design template for color schemes and beyond. Clear Studios aims to be curious and mindful when renovating historic spaces.
