Design Practice Location:

New York, United States

Oceans is an elevated take on a classic New York bistro with a downtown feel, located on a prominent corner near Union Square. Rockwell Grou’’s design for the restaurant features a spatial strategy that telescopes the energy from the bar into successively more intimate dining spaces, including multiple seating groupings, three private dining areas, and a sushi bar, offering a uniquely flexible restaurant. An undulating wood-rib ceiling, inspired by New York City’s historic archways, frames each discreet, but open, environment. White oak, whitewashed brick, hammered antique brass, and leather and navy blue accents dominate the luxurious material palette.
