NOBU INDIAN WELLS
INDIAN WELLS, CALIFORNIA
Square Footage: 4,800 SF
Completed March 2014
Located within the renowned Indian Wells Tennis Garden in the Palm Springs region of Southern California, this Nobu establishment sits above the stands of Stadium Two, allowing diners to spectate the live action of the match below. Drawing from the warm material palette and modern interpretation of traditional Japanese details that identify the Nobu brand.
Like the tournament, the restaurant only runs three weeks per year. It draws an international crowd to dine and lounge in Nobu elegance with its luxury box like location and a plethora of tastefully located closed circuit televisions which broadcast multiple matches in progress. Displaying a ceiling built of Doug Fir beams and surfaces wrapped in thoughtfully designed details integrating teak and ipe woods with oil rubbed bronze hardware and flax hued fabrics the restaurant surely acts as a retreat from the desert heat. The effect is a sophisticated Japanese fusion environment that perfectly defines the Nobu dining experience.
