Osteria Oggi Adelaide

Name: Osteria Oggi Adelaide
Location:Adelaide, South Australia
Design: Studio Gram



Utilizing the natural light and architecture of their space, Osteria Oggie is a bright, light-filled space with a focus on repetition and simple materiality. 




Balancing traditional Italian design with the very on-trend pastel color story, the interior feels both fresh and light but also rooted in history and simplicity. The minimalist and pure material palate helps balance the geometric floors and repetition of curves. Attention to detail within such a simplified space elevates the interior and creates a sense of richness and depth.

Carter Bar & Kitchen

Name: Carter Bar & Kitchen
Location: Amsterdam, Netherlands
Design: Nicemakers


Carter Bar & Kitchen, located in Amsterdam, is a warm and gilded reprieve from the everyday. Chestnut and chocolate browns, high gloss blacks, and shiny brass play off each other perfectly within the two story space.

I love the simple shelving behind the bar and how it helps balance the scale of the two-story open space in the bar area. 


All three areas within the space have a distinctive feel but come together in a cohesive manor. All feel warm, rich, and layered which makes for a space you feel you could sit and stay for a while.

Verden E5

Name: Verden E5
Location: London
Design: Otherworks


Located in London, Verden E5 is a modern wine bar and deli. With bold geometric lines prevalent throughout the interior, the space is modern and dramatic.







Intimate lighting in the dining room contrasts the lighter, airy bar space. I love the bold lighting in the bar area and enjoy the strong geometry created by use of simple fixtures.

Al Tun Tún

Name: Al Tun Tún
Location: Valencia, Spain
Design: Sandra Tarruella



A controlled material palate and great amount of natural light help make Al Tun Tún a warm, beckoning space. 





The beautiful open kitchen puts the cooking at center stage. Simple lines and a beautiful lighting installation add just enough to support the theater and help with the overall scale of the two story space.

Shortstop

Name: Shortstop
Location: Melbourne, Australia
Design: Foolscap 



A good doughnut is always a good find. A good doughnut in a great space; can you ask for more?
Foolscap crafted a space for Shortstop Coffee & Doughnuts that is bright, light, and playfully speaks to the key offering.


We love the subtle pattern created from the tile installation and the beautifully displayed doughnuts within their glass case. Subtle, well-thought out details like these help elevate the simple interior.

Throughout the space you will notice the circular shape present; a playful and fitting ode to the doughnut. Paired with light, blonde wood, glossy tiles, and light concrete the space feels bright and warm.


Warm walnut wood tones help balance out the space and add a bit of richness at the entry. The custom tables and bar help maximize the small square footage of the space and allow for a moment of respite.

Our Work; The Depot

Name: The Depot
Location: Reno, NV
Design: Kaper Design


We are excited to share with you the recently opened spot we completed in Reno, NV.   The Depot was named after the buildings' 1910 origin as the depot for the the Nevada- California- Oregon railway. The design of the space plays tribute to it's rich history while firmly planting itself in the present.





The large space features three floors; the first floor showcases the brewing and distilling that takes place behind the bar and includes bar seating, a dining room, host stand, and restrooms. The kitchen, additional bar, dining space, private lounge, and additional restrooms are located on the second. On the third floor there are offices and the barrel room.









Barrister bookcases and custom millwork great you as you enter. Ceiling details call back to the beautiful slat benches once present and common within train depots throughout the country. 

We wanted to keep the palate warm and understated to allow for the architecture of the space, and the brewing equipment behind the bar, to shine. 


The second floor bar features beautiful concrete tiles and and industrial seating while the first floor dining space, shown below, features a large-scale map showing The Depot's location and old rail lines that we had created as a wall covering.

Olio

Name: Olio
Location: St Louis, MO
Designer: Unknown


A converted 1930's filling station, Olio is half of a dual project located in St Louis. Utilizing the existing structure, windows, and garage door the space has just enough grittiness and authenticity offset by industrial lighting and an inviting warmth. 




As a small space, the scale of the bar emphasizes the casual atmosphere. Reclaimed tiles, exposed wall finishes, and utilitarian & industrial lighting strongly root the stations past.

St. Cecilia

Name: St. Cecilia
Location: Atlanta, GA
Design: Meyer Davis Studio

Located in Atlanta, St. Cecilia is a beautiful blend of traditional and contemporary. The layering of materials and attention to detail throughout help keep this large space grounded and comfortable.




We love all of the small details that Meyer Davis infused into the interior. Every area is thought through and considered.


Given the large scale of the space, using semi-circle booths to dot the space, helps create movement and a more intimate environment. This is a solution that commonly cannot be used within smaller scale spaces simply due to the room required for guest to enter and exit the booths but works extremely well in this application.

Holy Fox Cafe

Name: Holy Fox Cafe
Location: Kitay-Gorod, Moskva, Russia   
Design: WowHaus


Using common materials and a great pop of color and pattern, Holy Fox creates a harmonious space that feel industrial, hip, and cohesive. 



Though a relatively narrow space, the interior feels anything but. Keeping the furniture and casework light distinguishes zones within the space. Keeping the material palate limited also helps keep the interior harmonious.
 One of our favorite moments within the space is the CMU divider and bright pop the fox wall covering brings; perfectly contrasting the rougher materials located adjacent.

Nude Coffee & Wine Bar

Name: Nude Coffee & Wine Bar
Location: Moscow
Design: FORM Bureau

Located in the heart of Moscow, Nude Coffee & Wine Bar sits within a vintage residential building. Keeping the palate simple and understated with subtle pops of brass creates a balanced and cohesive interior fitting of its name. 


Layers of plaster were roughly stripped away to reveal the original brick beyond. The rough textures allows for a contrast to the more polished and clean fixtures and furnishings. 


 Another great detail within the space is the linear menu board, allowing offerings to be slid in and out as needed. The scrabble-esq feeling adds a touch of playfulness and informalness.
