In contrast to a similar project on the opposite side of the same building, the specific material selections were made in response to the eastern exposure and the morning light and are intended to draw light into the space. To this end, the palette relies extensively on the use of beached white oak walls, limestone flooring and extensive use of natural bronze accent metals. The furniture selections complete the aesthetic and create a setting with strong references to the beach, ocean, sand, and sun. Formally, the design utilizes clean contemporary lines, a rich material palette, and meticulous detailing.
