Blue Bottle Coffee, Playa Vista

at 12105 W Waterfront Drive 90094

Surrounded by commercial offices, we designed this café as an artful, sensual retreat. Upon entering the space, a perimeter of lush greenery along the windows and Japanese joinery details in the millwork form a striking contrast to the building’s sleek exterior. The speckled tables and dimpled glass standing bar, along with coiled rope pendants by Doug Johnston, offer textural points throughout the space.
