This renovated 2,100 SF pizza restaurant was previously a delivery kitchen attached to a two story duplex. The duplex was demolished to make way for the addition of a restaurant to the delivery kitchen, which remained open during construction.
The entry to the restaurant has a low slanted canopy which provides sun shading to the south and a contrast to the higher ceilings within. The west exterior also has sun shading provided by large, kid-friendly, movable louvers, which can be rotated by hand. Solar panels are incorporated into the roof parapet design, which are also viewable from a skylight located directly inside the main entrance.
The interior ceiling is articulated by exposed glu-lam beams and car decking. Valentino marble, white-washed oak boards, and hot-rolled steel line the interior walls. Interior seating includes custom stained oak and steel benches with white cushioned upholstered backrests. The main table has a stained-oak top and utilizes camshafts from a WWII marine diesel engine for legs.
Floisand Studio performed all architectural, interior, lighting, kitchen and furniture design.
