CLIENT:  Chin Chin Grill   LOCATION : 8618 Sunset Blvd West Hollywood, CA 90069   AREA:  2200 Sqft   COMPLETED:  2004   PROGRAM:  Restaurant   CONTRACTOR:  Milker and Sons:  Chris Miller    IMAGES BY:  Kevin Stapleton
       
     
 As a well-known eating establishment on Sunset Blvd, Chin Chin – the first of six scattered around Southern California -- had a strong presence on the swanky strip of stores and eateries. The owner hired AdamWheelerDesign to remodel the space and infuse a new energy to the look and its identity.
       
     
 The new concept featured a juxtaposition of Japanese elegance and California 50s diner-esque feel, always keeping with the initial offerings of Chinese fanfare.
       
     
 An addition of a Japanese cook line was added perpendicular to the existing Chinese grill allowing for the new kitchen to act as a stage backdrop to the fluid activities of Sunset Blvd.    
       
     
 The interiors required a fresh redo which introduced a Pan Asian menu and playing with the sensory elements of comfort, simplicity and feel of a 50s diners.  The selection of materials proposed a blend of stainless steel, concrete and bamboo flooring, wall mounted frosted glass panels, ceiling hung canvas clad acoustic panels, and bamboo plywood trim speaking to Japanese elegance and Googie quirkness. The Colors presented were warm browns, beiges and light orangish reds.
