The task: Take a cavernous Asian chain restaurant and turn it into a hip, upscale, fine dining destination on Denver’s iconic 16th Street Mall – Design in two weeks, open in eight. The result: Ling & Louie’s was transformed into Ambria. The bar was opened up to the dining room yet great care was taken to create multiple guest experiences throughout. Finishes were selectively changed and the lighting was accented with stunning feature pieces. A custom community table of wood and amber dramatically anchors the space creating a home for many a happy hour or brunch.
