RESTAURANT & Bar • San francisco, CA
We are often asked to redesign spaces with a lot of history but Magnolia Haight St. has to be one of the most special projects we have worked on to date. Literal layers of paint, gold leaf, laughter and acid have made this place an SF time capsule. We decided to keep all the things we loved about our memories of hanging out here and refresh the things that had dwindled from our mind. The steam warn gold leaf remains the highlight of the space with a now brighter feeling because of contrasted new white ceilings and walls. Pattern play of corduroy, plaid and paisley adorn the banquettes to ode to its hippy psychedelic past. Actual vintage wallpaper was sourced to bring in an authentic feeling of nostalgia and a modern mix of light blues and golden yellows bring in the brand color palette of Magnolia today. Blackened steel, casual industrial barstools and pub style lighting balance the space into an effortless modern day drinking spot.
