T SAKHI | Tessa & Tara Sakhi as Architects

Demonstrating new and evolved ways of expressing culture, the sisters’ rendition of the Middle Eastern restaurant reminds one of the unique sensory experience inherent to a culture.

 

ADAR subtly captures Levantine culture without falling into clichés of orientalism and grandiosity. Instead, the sisters mimic the raw colors of the landscape in hues of browns, oranges, and off-white, with a central, corrugated mesh chandelier collecting dried spices, vegetables, and flowers to evoke the souk. Optimizing the natural filtered light of the Passage’s glass roof, T SAKHI’S warm palette integrates walnut and oak wood, oxidized brass, patina walls, verde olive granite, hand-made ceramic plates, and inox offering rich layers of texture.

 

Throughout the restaurant, a bodily sense of dynamism is achieved. Stained mirrors reflect the movement of visitors, while chefs TamirNahmias and Aaron Rosenthal prepare fresh Levantine cuisine in a striking terracotta open-kitchen, framing the act of cooking as a performance. Extending the experience, organic Mediterranean food products from Greece, Lebanon, Turkey, and Italy will be available to purchase at ADAR, inviting Levantine elements into Parisian homes.
