With a limited budget, space constraints and landmarks district status, LED focused on a single design gesture that could define the eating, drinking and retail areas. Using cork plank flooring as the primary material, LED applied it over a new concrete slab floor and wrapped the adjacent wall and ceiling to define the service areas. The randomly slotted cork ceiling and walls allowed for tactical lighting and backlit wine/tea display. Solid walnut, blackened steel and fiber cement make up the remaining materials for the custom bar, counter tops and various custom shelving units.
