Located in a historic San Francisco neighborhood this Austrian Restaurant finds a foothold in the Italian drenched corridors of North Beach.
The existing historical building with a 14ft wide, 1500 sq.ft. (Including the lower level) space provided some unique opportunities when paired with the clients request for a restaurant that will house a concept of “Austrian Après-ski and Heuriger (wine tavern) meets German Beer Hall meets Northern Italy”.
Playing off an Austrian Mountain house typology with dark wood detailing at both the interior and exterior. The façade lights up at night creating a modern but playful design reminiscent of the Alpine Constellations guiding travelers to a urbanized hand finished concrete bench. The interior elements were distilled down to feel both the rustic and refined. White plaster and distressed lath at the back bar wall, custom furniture and hand made intricate lattice light fixture hanging from rough sawn beams.
