The sleek, refined design of São Paulo’s Kaa transforms the restaurant experience into an urban oasis. Isolated from the city by the lush vertical garden containing over 7000 rainforest plants, the space is finished with hardwood, neutral fabrics and warm lighting to emulate the relaxed sophistication of a hotel lounge. A glass retractable roof allows for control of the elements, while the central water feature creates a serene ambiance.

The pared back design is complemented by the careful use of detail, such as the collection of vintage objects behind the bar. As Arthur Casas has said of his work, ‘It’s not about how much you spend, it’s your capacity to transform a space into something interesting.’ See more at the Cool Hunter and Timeout.
