Samo Restaurant

A restaurant we designed in Santa Monica, CA.

Santa Monica Restaurant


The project is focused on a single intervention: a striated, folded ceiling element that differentiates the interior volume based on activity, use, and noise. Our proposal creates a dialogue with the existing brick interior. Our proposal maintained the existing brick interior walls to champion a union between old and new charters within the space.
