Venice, Los Angeles, CA
AIA / LA, Restaurant Design Award, 2012
Inspired by the paradoxical ugly beauty of Venice, we incorporated equal parts freaky and sublime within a neighborhood restaurant. The intimate dining area is an extension of the kitchen, where Southern California-centric elements combine to encourage a convivial atmosphere, reminiscent of hanging out poolside or by a campfire on the beach.
