Watershed & Heart ➯ Restaurant Design
The concept for this collaboration centers around creating a day and night lounge space, with a focus in anchoring a variety of types of lounge spaces to the existing architecture. The use of monochromatic dots juxtaposed with an overall grayscale space brings color blocking to life. The front of the space functions as a retail and cafe space for Heart Coffee Roasters in the daytime and the back of the space opens up in the evening as a curated cocktail bar for Watershed Distillery.

ITALIAN SENSE AND SENSIBILITY:
The choice for the color palette was derived from both brand’s original color palettes (i.e. Watershed Distillery and Heart Roasters), but was embellished with the colors and color blocking for interior spaces found in the Italian Dimore Studio. Inspiration from Italian painter, Atanasio Aoldati, was the inspiration for the space planning, as it draws inspiration from his paintings compositions. The furniture in the Giulia Hotel in the Galleria di Milano inspired furniture selection, a mix of mid-century modern and a contemporary infusion.
