The Zen Thai restaurant is a re-branding and interior design renovation of an existing Thai Restaurant in Downtown Phoenix by the Architect.  The Architectural work included removal and replacement of the existing building storefront system.  Two exiting columns dating the early 1900s remain in place.  The Architect shifted the entry one bay to create space for a service bar and small outdoor seating area in front of the restaurant.  The Architecture and Interior design is intended to assist in activating the streetscape evironment of the Phoenix Downtown Core through the use of operable storefronts by the Architect.
