Wild Wasabi

New Life For A Neighborhood Favorite

Wild Wasabi Sushi is in Downtown Nashville, located in the historic Cummins Station. Xan was tasked with creating a branded interior that would elevate the experience without alienating regular clientele. We kept their main color, and created and entirely fresh space starting with a maximized workflow for the staff. They had outgrown their original space plan so we created an entry, new wait stations, more seating, and reworked the counter for better connection between the sushi chef and guest. The concept is inspired by classic Japanese design — natural materials, light tones, clean lines, rice paper shoji screen entry, modern but not too serious.
