Geometric alcoves, rope partitions and a dramatic arched ceiling make up the design of this new restaurant by California studio Archisects.
Called Madison, the contemporary restaurant is located in the University Heights district in San Diego, a coastal city in Southern California. The 3,000-square-foot (279-square-metre) space formerly housed a nightclub.
"With the Madison design, Archisects sought to make a timeless, inviting space while expanding the design palate of the San Diego area," the firm said.
Painted light blue and illuminated by nautical-style light fixtures, the street facade is meant to reference Victorian-era storefronts seen throughout the neighbourhood.
Patrons enter into a casual lounge with walls and ceilings sheathed in cedar planks.
To break up the length of the room, the designers placed multicoloured, triangular panels along one wall, and alcoves with blue, geometric bas-reliefs along the other.
"The cavernous space is made more intimate with the subtle inward tilt of the walls, along with the addition of a site-specific rope installation and Jonathan Adler chandeliers," the firm said.
