// We were fortunate to be involved with the first renovation of the Coconut Lagoon restaurant. In May of 2020 there was a fire on the roof causing extensive damage to the original structure. After reviewing a number of options, and considering the state of the existing building there was no choice but to demolish the building and start new.
The owner wanted to retain the material palette from the original renovation, so we used this as a starting point for the new design. Coconut Lagoon is a modern Indian Restaurant, and we wanted this to be reflected in the design of the project. We kept the architectural moves on the project simple, but then added complexity in the articulation. The project has been design with a masonry base upon which sits a volume that has been rotated slightly from the geometry of the base. This provides a focal point for the design and also allows weather cover for the main entrance that has been move away from the corner.
The interiors have been designed with a simple but rich assortment of materials that create a welcoming and modern dining experience. Dark, moody tones and textures are offset by highlights of brass, which is evident in the feature lighting suspended in the high ceilings above the main dining area.
