From the architect. SFJones Architects’ latest inspired creation is the hip new M.B. Post in Manhattan Beach, opening in April 2011. For this upscale eatery, SFJones was asked to design a “soulful space.”

 A Manhattan Beach resident himself, Jones realized that he could capture the essence of this warm beach community by weaving into the design distinctive local building features such as volleyball posts and lifeguard stations amid reclaimed barn wood, incorporating historical references to the original Manhattan Beach post office with rustic walnut millwork and a faux-painted vintage feature wall.
