NOBU NATURE RETREAT ... Nobu Hotel Palo Alto, known for its Japanese food with Peruvian accents, unveiled its newest addition this month: a Japanese-inspired garden and dining space featuring natural elements and a minimalist aesthetic, according to publicist Meghan Breen. The space serves as an overflow dining area for the existing restaurant, as well as an event venue with room for up to 54 people. During colder weather, guests can sit in the warmth of the new dining room while enjoying views of nature through the glass doors and ceiling. "The design was driven by ideas of composition and warmth of materiality — thinking about how we consider air, water, light, nourishment, comfort and tranquility of mind when seeking a retreat in an urban setting," said David Montalba, whose company Montalba Architects collaborated with landscape gardener Shigeru Namba to design the extension. The garden is located behind a decorative gate on the Emerson Avenue side of the downtown Palo Alto hotel.
