Harney Sushi serves up green restaurant design

Related Special Reports

Harney Sushi Oceanside features reusable and recycled materials such as bamboo plywood, strawboard plywood substrate, low VOC paints and sealers, LED lighting, Ecolab dishwashing equipment, Vetrazzo counters and 3-Form glazing. In keeping with the "green" concept, the décor of the restaurant incorporates all four of Earth's elements -- a 600-gallon fish tank behind the sake bar, a waterfall behind the sushi bar, an ethanol fireplace and various wood and metal elements in the walls and floors.

3-Form's Varia ecoresin panels, named Building Green's 2006 Top 10 Green Building Products, are made of a minimum of 40 percent recycled content. Other 3-Form paneling consists of up to 100 percent post-consumer recycled content. The Vetrazzo counters are made of up to 85 percent recycled glass, mostly from curbside recycling programs, and is produced within California. The bamboo plywood is made from a renewable resource. The strawboard typically is a minimum of 80 percent renewable content, recycled from agricultural waste.

Situated on a bustling corner of Mission and Cleveland in the heart of downtown Oceanside's emerging urban renewal district, Harney Sushi Oceanside retains the brand's signature sophisticated edginess, but adds an all new elegance while maintaining a green design. The new 3,500-square-foot space seats 185 patrons, with the option to dine inside or on the patio. Floor to ceiling windows provide a view of the Pacific Ocean, blending the "funk shui" experience with the serenity of Oceanside's beaches.
