The Gables is inspired by the story of a local Santa Monica Beach Club of the same name that was never fully completed in the 1920s. Working with Mystery, an award-winning Branding/Design agency, our aim was to create the feeling of an independent community eatery, that represented its locality in beach-side Santa Monica. We used a range of materials to give a contrast of everyday finishes, such as white-washed wood, glazed tiles and mid-century air-bricks with aspirational touches of brass, poured concrete for the flooring and Carrera marble for the counter-top. A vertical garden flanks the patio wall, with cascading greenery adding color and texture to the restaurant’s Santa Monica beachy aesthetic.
