Project • By CeilumeRestaurants

Little Jumbo Restaurant and Bar

The concept was “1920’s New York-style speakeasy,” with a wooden bar, exposed brick walls, old tiles in the washrooms, and a classic decorative ceiling.  The solutions that brought it to life ranged from metal panels salvaged from a burnt building to brand new Ceilume thermoformed ceiling tiles that offer a vintage look with modern convenience.   The Little Jumbo Restaurant started as the fulfillment of a long-held dream.  Australian star-bartender Shawn Soole had often talked about opening his own cocktail bar.  His friend, Sara Baxter, owner and principal designer of Live By Design (Vancouver, BC), partnered with him make that a reality.   The location is an historic structure, The Pacific Tr...

KOKO Restaurant

“THE NARRATIVE TO AN ANCESTRAL FOLKTALE OF THE COCONUT ISLAND”Fascinating oriental flavors complement a wondrous experience playing out at KOKO Restaurant, a dining outlet of The Village Coconut Island Resort Phuket serving self-service breakfast, casual gastronomic dinner, to midnight cocktails.  From a forgotten native folktale of a misfortunate fisherman, believed to be Coconut Island’s pioneer, who was saved ashore after a boat wreck accident by hugging a floating coconut to the island, Studio Locomotive made assumptions further towards his surviving journey and settlement that latter became the design concept of KOKO Restaurant; the fisherman discovered a freshwater pond in this ‘cave’ and decided to...

Restaurante El Gordo y el Flaco

Trusting in our studio, Salva and Pablo commissioned us with the project for the relocation of their restaurant. For this purpose, an old corner house with no architectural value is chosen, located in a low-rise building area. This new location makes it possible to house the new restaurant in its own building, which allows all the advantages that its old premises did not have. The project covers the demolition of the old building and the construction of a new one. Whenever there is a change of business, there is a need to improve the existing, so the main starting point of the project was to solve all the problems that the old location had without affecting the main features of the restaurant. For this we thought, given that this new locati... More

Project • By DP ArchitectsBars


redpan began with a simple wish to share good food in a good setting—a ‘living room' that nurtures interaction and creativity, where ideas can be exchanged over a casual, convivial meal. From the observation that DP’s own architects and staff like to hold informal work discussions at cafes near the office, the architecture firm conceived redpan as an exercise in building camaraderie in an urban environment where the line between work and play is increasingly blurred. The restaurant is in Marina Square, where the firm’s headquarters is located.DP picked local restaurateurs The Food Explorer Group, owners of popular bistro GRUB, as creative partners in this ‘love affair’ between design and food. This first joint F&B venture between DP and... More

Rendervous Bistro

A restaurant in Jackson Hole, Wyoming was an existing breakfast diner converted into a high-profile bistro. Pollard Architects was hired as the design architect and associated with a local firm called Tobler Duncker Architects to create a restaurant embellished with western simplicity and high level dining experience. On the exterior, a horizontal wood slat volume was created, similar to western snow fences, wrapped around a private dining room and creating a seamless transition from the outside in. Patterned oak flooring, mahogany and onyx were some of the essential materials used to create the western intimate scale and ambience. The walls and ceilings are adorned with slate and wood. Overall, our collaborative effort was a successfu... More

Market Street Grill & Oyster Bar South Jordan

This is a 14,500 square foot restaurant and bar. The Market Street and Oyster Bar was for Gastronomy, Inc. and has become a new prototype for future facilities. Based on an original design by Pollard Architects, this new facility reinforces the seafood symbols, and provides a clean approach to service and dinning experience. The new restaurant offers the same excellent food choices as the previous restaurants and similar ambience. The main kitchen services both the Oyster bar and the Grill. The Grill is white paneling with mahogany trim which opens outward towards the mountain views. The Oyster Bar on the North side, is an octagon, and focuses inward for a more intimate atmosphere.

Native Hostel, Bar & Kitchen

The Native Hostel, Bar & Kitchen is a boutique hostel, bar, cafe, and event space designed for the epicurean traveller and locals alike. It is nestled in an existing 2-story late 1800’s stone building and a mid-century brick warehouse right in the middle of the upcoming transit-oriented development adjacent to downtown.We sought to preserve the history but create something culturally conducive for the current and future generations. By merging all periods and styles, we were able to create something that feels timeless; a place that could have been relevant many years ago, is relevant today, and will be relevant for many years to come. The Native concept is focused around social activity including music, arts, socializing, food, and ent... More

Project • By Hitzig Militello arquitectosBars


The project starts from a great challenge, to preserve the identity of the existing bar hidden behind its back door and merge it with the new project. The existent restaurant & bar, Victoria Brown, has a british steampunk identity, that has nothing to do with the new project.The superposition of identities had to respect the current hidden bar identity, achieving an integration with the new project. The decision of an alley in Tokyo helped with the aesthetics of street graffiti, achieving a mix of identities on the façade and the fictitious wall of access to the bar, as if it had been spontaneously intervened by street artists.The existing fictitious wall (door entrance to the hidden bar) served as a scenography of a typical wall at a c...

Project • By Collaborative CompaniesRestaurants


After designing the furniture for the Masonry’s original Queen Anne location, the client engaged the Collaborative team again to help create a new restaurant space in the heart of Fremont.

junction Bakery

Located in the Del Ray neighborhood of Alexandria, VA (1508 Mount Vernon Avenue), Junction Bakery & Bistro is an all-day bakery and café from restaurateur Noe Landini and chef/baker Nathan Hatfield. CORE created an inviting space that uncovers the building’s 1940s character as a grocery store, while connecting to Del Ray’s railroad history. Junction blends the warmth of dining at home and the energy of a working bakery. Customers have an expansive view to the 4-deck oven through the large steel and glass wall behind the retail counter. The 50-seat café area combines banquette seating, and loose casual groupings of marble-topped tables. Junction’s palette reflects the colors popular in 1940s residential architecture and fashion.

Commonwealth Joe Coffee Roasters

Commonwealth Joe founders Robert Peck and COO Chase Damiano bring their passion for coffee to their new flagship store in Crystal City at The Bartlett apartment building. Rooted in their purposeful and crafted approach, the design is inspired by images of blue-collar craftsmen, toolboxes, and the coffee-bean roasting process. CORE created a rich and neutral palette that reflected those simple, thoughtful, hardworking details. Hints of plaid flannel, rust-colored leather, glossy cream tile, concrete counters, and black and brass metals add moments of texture around the store. Light oak is the dominant wood tone, while a warm-grey wood highlights millwork features. The Espresso Station becomes a focal point for guests so they can see the bari... More
