Design and build for custom wine racks, spirits racks, dividing green wall, tasting bar, tables, and retail counter for Bar & Garden, a Culver City shop specializing in organic/biodynamic wines and small batch liquor. The clients had a background in landscape architecture and gardening, so wanted a rustic/modular feel that would be complemented by accents of live plants and garden paraphernalia.
The majority of the construction was built from reclaimed old-growth douglas fir beams that (supposedly) were removed from a house that Frank Sinatra once owned. The tasting bar is a live-edge slab of Bastogne Walnut, also called Paradox, a rare cross between an English Walnut and Black Walnut species.
Concept design and layout:
Leather lacing and pegs keep modular triangles in place.
