The interior is constructed with locally sourced oak and steel and the ingredients are either sourced from artesian farmers, or forged by the Gamsai staff themselves.

Brousseau’s team set about the re-design from a blank canvas.

Jardín del Asia restaurant is part of Los Tajibos Hotel, the most luxurious and important hotel in Santa Cruz de la Sierra, the largest urban center in Bolivia’s eastern region.

The design is made up of a number of textures, tones, shadows and light. Rustic original brick, rivet steel and rich hard wood floors are the foundations of the design. This paves the way for soft leathers, warm polished copper tones, gleaming surfaces of marble and raw exposed timbers brimming with character.
