The team was tasked with creating a space that offered the essence of Persian hospitality in a modern design. Inspiration was taken from whirling dervishes, Persian calligraphy and old-world architecture. Zones were employed via a series of arches to create a variety of guest experiences and to make the space seem bigger than its 6,246 square feet. The judges felt the overall “interior design, arches, lighting and warmth of the space” was great, and that the “textures were terrific; there is good flow from the dining area to the bar.”
