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.

King + Duke

Name: King + Duke
Location: Atlanta, GA
Design: Meyer Davis Studio

Recently opened in Atlanta, King + Duke is the the fourth restaurant in Ford Fry's restaurant family. Playing off of the novel 'Adventures of Huckleberry Finn' the restaurant is deceptively casual and relaxed and features early American cooking techniques and rustic cuisine. 

Throughout the space a mix of rustic and refined materials work together to create a curated and timeworn interior. 

The large circular booths and light wood add contemporary elements while the leather accents and wood paneled walls bring in a rustic element to balance it out.

West Egg Cafe

Name: West Egg Cafe
Location: Atlanta, GA
Design: Square Feet Studio

What catches my eye about West Egg Cafe, located in the heart of Atlanta, is it's simplicity and authenticity. In design, simplicity always seems like it would be the easiest element to achieve when in reality, it's one of the hardest. Keeping a minimal palate and limited materials drives you to analyze each components location, use, and function in the larger picture. Creating a space that is functional, efficient, and cohesive while avoiding the sparse, under-developed feeling traditionally associated with simplicity and minimalism, is a true test. West Egg Cafe accomplished this simplicity and still managed to create a visually interesting, functional, and inviting space.
