Katsuya Hollywood by Starck Hollywood, CA
- Client: SBE Entertainment Group
- Architect: Design ARC
- Interior Designer: Phillippe Starck
The lighting at this Hollywood sushi destination is a response to the desire for concealed, unobtrusive lighting in the clean, modern design of Philippe Starck. The owner’s request for minimal lamp type stock and attention to fixture accessibility is the basis of all fixture selection. The desire to create a unique modern space, while meeting budget and California’s Title 24, drove much of the design, however, the desire for aesthetic tidiness is at the forefront of the Katsuya design. Careful integration of light fixtures allows effects to be seen but does not interrupt the space’s clean lines.
