Workshop Kitchen & Bar restaurant by SOMA, Palm Springs – California

January 23rd, 2013 by retail design blog

The client requested a fresh new architectural identity to correspond with his opening of the Workshop Kitchen & Bar restaurant in Palm Springs, CA. The given site, the Historic El Paseo building, immediately constrained the possibilities of the design, which we exploited to our advantage. The project seeks to retain the elegance of the existing space, by enhancing the verticality of the existing space.

The concrete furniture stands in immediate contrast to the white existing building. In the center aisle, a large communal dining table acts as a more public dining space, while large monolithic concrete booths provide a more intimate dining setting. Additionally, a private dining area at the rear of the space allows guests to dine at the monolithic altar piece. Lighting design by PS-Lab in Beirut elegantly compliments the brutalist interior.
