Despite our best annual resolutions committing to do otherwise, we tend to relish the pleasure of eating out. And it’s hardly only about the food; when good design is on the menu, it’s easy to become a culinary spendthrift.
Case in point: Madison, this 3,000-square-foot, San Diego, California, restaurant designed by local studio Archisects and recently showcased on Dezeen. Carved from a former nightclub, the Mediterranean restaurant has a few intriguing interior quirks, including its 20-foot-high barrel-vaulted ceilings and wood-lined interiors.
Inspired by both Japanese and Nordic design traditions, the restaurant includes leather recessed, rope-partitioned banquettes tucked into angular nooks and accents in cool shades of pink, yellow, and blue. Take a look around and read more over at Dezeen.
