Restaurants / Olivia

This design for a ground up restaurant in South Austin creates a unique experience that establishes an intimate relationship between the patrons and one of Austin’s most talented chefs. The open kitchen is set off by a surround of organic wallpaper, clearly seen through the large corner glass opening to the street beyond. A wood ceiling of Douglas Fir brings inside to out and provides a rich, warm feeling throughout the restaurant. The roof extends to engage an adjacent outdoor dining terrace and garden.
