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!

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.

Greenhouse Garden Supply Exterior Signage, Logo, Interior and Exterior Color

By , May 31, 2010 11:37 am

I recently had the opportunity to take over on a project for a garden supply warehouse in Sacramento, CA.  They originally had a completely different scheme, signage and logo, then hired me to make it a profitable, professional and welcoming retail space.  Previously, they had the signage proposed in a lime green as well as the trim for the exterior in a different, very unattractive lime green.  We repainted the whole exterior and I sorted out the signage and interior color scheme.  The interior photos to follow, for now – the exterior.

Opening soon: The  Greenhouse Garden Supply

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!

Spud! Organic Grocery Delivery Interior Design & Mural

By , August 19, 2009 2:49 pm

Hi There!  I finally got around to taking some good photographs of the interiors that I did for the Spud! Organic Grocery Delivery warehouse/office interiors.  My friend Shawn who works there also used to be a professional painter, so he painted the interior walls and I used the colors to do the mural in the entry.  The challenge was to use extremely environmentally friendly paints, so we found and used the new Freshaire paint brand that you can actually find at Home Depot.  Zero VOC and low fumes.  It actually didn’t smell paint-y at all!  I love challenges like this.  The best part is that I already love Spud! and their organic groceries make my life way easy.  Become a fan of Spud! Los Angeles on Facebook!
