The prompt was "mid century modern meets Miami". The result is truly something one of a kind.
Working with Seija Ojanpera, owner and visionary of The Dwell Hotel in collaboration with Tinker Ma, we designed and built the retro-modern banquettes and brass framed plant walls throughout the restaurant. Mid-century notes of walnut, colorful Naugahyde and velvet, and brass tipped spindle legs set the tone. The elegant, polished brass plant walls soften the hotel's Civil War-era stone walls. We kept them green with minimal maintenance using hidden, timed, water circulation systems.
We were later called upon to help facilitate a rebrand of the restaurant from Terra Mae to the Solarium. We built a back lit glass and stone bar, walnut and brass casework and shelving, and clad some walls with lush, green, astroturf.
