Makoto Vail at The Grand Hyatt Vail, Colorado

Restaurant / USA / HBA San Francisco / Completed in 2024


The restaurant features 110 seats with a design that honors the elegance and simplicity of Japanese interiors. The design team incorporates conscious materiality, color palettes, and textures inspired by Vail’s surrounding natural landscape. Wabi-sabi design, the Japanese concept of embracing the natural world through natural materials, is showcased through light wood, dark metal, and smooth stone. The entrance is accented by a large shoji screen, which leads guests into the bar that is anchored by an original dynamic art installation made of paper and string by Colorado artist Jacob Hashimoto. The main dining room features an open kitchen on one side and a line of cozy booths on the other, centered by a configuration of tables. Nano doors reveal the scenery of the mountains, and provide access to an indoor-outdoor, temperature controlled terrace for year-round dining. The space also holds an intimate private dining room for up to six guests.
