Pongo

This Asian noodle house and beer hall is a modern take on the Asian restaurant.  It references Asian culture in a vague and abstract way, through bamboo and grasscloth, lantern-inspired light fixtures, and circle motifs to evoke images of gongs so often seen in Asian restaurants.  This conceptual abstraction allows the restaurant to sit comfortably in the diverse local restaurant culture, serving as a fun, modern restaurant by day, and a post-night-out lounge at night.
