We designed this fast casual seafood restaurant in downtown Long Beach, California, to have a clean ambiance with rustic details yet modern finishings to heighten the feeling of the same things in the food. At Pier 76 Fish Grill, you’ll find just that. A beautifully grilled piece of Barramundi with fresh grill marks, served with a side of curly kale and tomato salad or Vermont white cheddar mac & cheese, set off on a miniature stainless steel baking sheet and a waxed butcher paper. It’s details like this that set in motion the design concept for Pier 76.
This was the Interior Finishes & Design Board that we put together over a year ago to help the client envision a completed project prior to making any moves. These design boards help finalize a concept, provide options for change and create visual cohesion prior to any purchasing an not even necessarily with a specific building or space in mind.
Now seeing the final product alongside the Finishes & Design Board shows a project from conceptualization through construction in what we consider a successful way!
Details like having custom tables with branding creates a distinct feel that sets Pier 76 Fish Grill apart from other restaurants.
You see similar details in the mixing of metals such as iron, vintage steel and stainless steel, as well as the slate chair rail and wainscot that complements the high ceilings while simultaneously creating a sense of intimacy.
