Restaurant Interior Design – Pier 76 Fish Grill

By , August 9, 2013 8:02 pm

An Interior Finishes & Design Board helps the client envision a completed project prior to purchasing and helps finalize a concept.  This was constructed at an early phase of the project, and now seeing the final product alongside the Finishes & Design Board shows a cohesive project from conceptualization through construction!

 

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!

Custom Tables with branding creates a distinct feel that sets Pier 76 Fish Grill apart from other restaurants.

 

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.

Design Board for Harris Cafe

By , August 2, 2012 2:53 pm

Hey there!  We’ve been pretty busy over here at Enliven Studios working on some fantastic projects!

This is a presentation design board for a cafe on the ground floor of an office building in the City of Industry.  It has been very exciting working with Twen Ma Architects putting together a floor plan, finishes and elevations to reflect our clients needs!  They were looking for a 1950′s inspired checkerboard diner feel combined with a modern tea and noodles type of cafe!  This was such a fun challenge because one wouldn’t think the two could come together so elegantly.

Take a look and let us know how we did on the presentation board!  We are looking forward to breaking ground and getting construction underway so you can see the finished product :)

Law Office Artiano & Associates Interiors Finish Board & Photos

By , October 28, 2009 3:51 pm

This is a project I did with Brenda Bell & Associates in Santa Monica, CA.  Artiano & Associates is a law firm in Torrance, where we did the interior design of their offices.  This project was done in two phases, the first being the custom reception desk and interior finishes, the second phase required paint and carpet as well as new custom millwork in the breakroom and office areas and custom signage in the reception area as shown below.  We also provided them with a floor finish plan with the proposed finishes.  Check out the preliminary finish board and the photographs for the finished products!

CDs for Chinese Cafe in Temple City

By , September 2, 2009 11:39 am

Finally!  I am finally finished with the construction documents with Twen Ma Architects for the Kang Kang Cafe in Temple City, CA.  Where the heck is Temple City?  Well, it’s somewhere between Pasadena and West Covina :)

This is an existing building remodel at the downtown city center, with an entrance from the garage parking and also from the street.  We’re finalizing finishes right now, but it’s a streamlined and modern design for a simple and quick dining solution.   Have a look!  I can’t wait – in a couple months I get to dine here!

These images are quick Photoshop mock-ups for a commercial exterior in Santa Monica.  These mock-ups range from contemporary to more traditional in color and style, including changes in the exterior lighting, doors and awnings.  The first image is the dated, existing exterior to be modified.

Simi Valley Shopping Center As-Builts

By , July 21, 2009 4:01 pm

Here are three as-built drawings that I created and input into AutoCAD, based on field verification and measuring by hand.  These shopping center suites are located in Simi Valley and were formerly leased by such companies as Starbucks and Foot Locker.  These as-built drawings were used for leasing documents commissioned by the leasing and property management companies.centrecourt-1252-1-102208-001b
