Chao weds through its cuisine the various Southeast Asian cultures. It was imperative that the design of the restaurant reflect this philosophy. The design had to draw in from these cultures the right elements and embellishments that best represented their culture. The pronounced differences in design were hemmed together with subtle elements so as to create a tapestry of Asian architecture that blanketed the entire establishment. To give it a contemporary nudge the exterior was clad with a custom designed signage and the entry of the building, which faces a major road, was punctuated by a double height glass-enclosed lobby. The lobby was tasteful decorated with art pieces tying the building to the cultural identity it seeks to enforce. The spatial design of the kitchen area is finished to afford maximum utility and in a manner that maximizes time and cost efficiency.
