Boutique Hospitality - Challenge: Design a boutique hotel reception + lounge and one guest suite
Location: Southern California; Client: young Hollywood celebrities
Solution: Southern California is infamous for its laid-back attitude and ties to the indie rock scene. My goal was to create an environment where people would feel comfortable in whether they came dressed up for the night or straight from the beach. A relaxed and casual tone is evident throughout.

Restaurant Design - The Challenge: The atmosphere at a tapas restaurant/bar has an emphasis on exuberant liveliness while people of all classes will congregate.
The Solution: The goal of “Frote Los Codos” is to encourage this connection between people – as it literally means ‘rub elbows’. The design layout stimulates patrons to travel throughout the space and around the bar, which is a hub for wine and congregation. It influences active interaction between both friends and strangers.
