Sawatdee Eden Prairie:

CLA and UDP worked with Sawatdee to develop a restaurant layout including customer seating, a bar, and hostess station for a new location in Eden Prairie. Working with Hokenbergs on the kitchen layout the project was completed June of 2013.


Sawatdee at the Minnesota State Fair:

CLA and UDP worked with Sawatdee to develop a proposal for the renovation of an open location at the State Fair. The proposal included a developed floor plan and a series of renderings of both the interior and exterior of the project. The inspiration for the design was Thai temples so the design included a change to the roof shape and structure to reflect the architecture of Thai temples. Besides the exterior the project included Thai art on the interior. The program included a kitchen, interior and exterior service lines, a bar, seating, and a performance stage.  Sawatdee was not selected for the location so the project is unbuilt.
