Scope: Interior Design, Facade Design, Fabrication, Build-Out
The Firehouse, located in Pacific Beach, was remodeled to embrace a new and vibrant design without losing touch with its playful history. Focusing more heavily on the word “fire” as a concept, the wooden cladding that covers the facade and downstairs space was burned in a method called Shou Sugi Ban to give it a charcoal appearance. Taking full advantage of the proximity to the beach, the facade opens up to give patrons access to the ocean views and vibrant street life. The charred downstairs, with its glowing brass accents, inviting fireplace, and hanging greenery, contrasts strikingly with the light and airy upstairs. Complete with VIP style cabanas, a grotto bar surrounding by a vegetated feature wall, and a shaded awning system, the upstairs is a year round popular destination.
