Conceptual photos that inspired some design elements of this project. - Spanish culture and architecture serve as the influence of the design concept for this project. The interior will consider basic elements that are common to Spanish architecture, and will apply a contemporary twist to those elements. Spain is well known for its flamenco dancers, who typically wear bright, vibrant clothing that is often very elaborate with pattern and decoration. This notion will serve as a reference point when considering finishes and materials to complete the overall look.

Rendered Floor Plan - Though the interior looks predominantly dark from the plan view, the lighting design and wall finishes actually make the interior very dramatic and eye-catching. This is due to the vibrant patterns, colors, and finishes that were chosen for the lighting and wall finishes, which cannot be seen in this particular rendering. The flooring material is stained concrete.

This is the non-rendered AutoCAD drawing of the floor plan. This view is just to clarify the floor plan so you can better see what you are looking at.

Reflected Ceiling/Lighting Plan (Rendered) - One of the most unique features of this interior is the ceiling. The ceiling is made from translucent fabric that is stretched over a steel beam framing system that gives the fabric a cross vaulting effect. There is recessed can lighting that is installed above the fabric so that only the glow from the lights can be seen, giving an intriguing luminous effect. The dark blocks and large circles seen above represent dropped parts of the ceiling, and the smaller circles are support columns.

Restaurant Facade Elevation - This restaurant is located on the first-story in the corner-space of a building that is set on a busy intersection in San Francisco. Therefore, all perimeter walls were existing and permanent except the facade. The main facade material used is a translucent concrete/glass mixture, while distressed and stained aluminum is used on columns and trim for accent.

Entry/Waiting Area - Panels are used instead of fixed walls so that the interior may maintain a sense of openness while still providing privacy in the right areas. They also contain an acoustical material to help control noise. No floor-to-ceiling walls were used so that the unique ceiling may be fully appreciated from anywhere within the space. The support columns are also a unique feature, in that they have rope lighting wound up the column with a perforated metal sheathing so that the columns glow from within.

Bar/Lounge Area - The tabletops have a shiny, polished finish with a polished aluminum center. The barback wall is a mirror with a waterfall trickling down for a shimmery effect. Even the orange wall covering itself is reflective.

Main Dining Area - This perspective rendering shows this restaurant's unique features in full-force. The black aluminum aesthetic columns hold the large partition panels in place while the support columns glow from within. They extend all the way up to the structural ceiling so that they can partially be seen through the stretched fabric that makes up the cross vaulted ceiling.
