One of the most rewarding projects we have enjoyed working on was to provide the restaurant interiors for the Blue Surf Restaurant at Arboretum West. We started working with the proprietors who referred us to the client and a great relationship developed. The architecture by Cothran Harris gave us wonderful elements to draw from and build upon. Good bones are always desirable in restaurant interiors as well as fine dining! We were charged with the goal of creating an environment that was coastal, while inland, and a hip, comfortable hang out. We felt it was important to pair the healthy minded menu with a pure, uncluttered space that gives the sense of calm but evokes the beach at every glance. The restaurant environment was designed to have an indoor-outdoor experience drawing guests to the full outdoor bar, through a big garage door, opening up the two spaces.
