The James Beard Foundation recently announced its winners for best restaurant design in 2014, and the winner for large restaurants is Shed in Healdsburg, designed by San Francisco-based Jensen Architects.
Key to the design's success is how it speaks to Shed's "Eat, Shop, Gather, Learn" ethos, in which the entire food cycle--from growing to preparing and eating--is a shared and sustainable process. This begins with an actual tool shed:
A kitchen shop serves as a resource for aspiring chefs:
The dining room is a sustainably built, modern barn. There is a mix of small chairs and bench seating to accommodate gatherings large and small. Implementing this look of mismatched dining seating for your home would be fun and makes for a very functional ding space.
Shed's combination of function and form lends a casual, unaffected warmth to the space. And it's the kind of thing you can do at home, especially if you have a great room floor plan that adjoins living and kitchen spaces. Just hang pendants over seating areas. Add barstools for casual sit-downs. And use a farmhouse table as your centerpiece.
Brent Turner is an architecture, design and art writer who adores elegantly simple distillations of complex design problems. You'll often catch him waxing poetic about how such creative problem solving is not only the essence of a successful art and design practice, but of science, engineering, and well, life in general. A California native, Brent was educated at U.C. San Diego where he was first exposed to clumsy yet endearingly avant-garde institutional art and architecture. In the years since, he has expanded his interest base to include all types of interior, graphic and industrial design. His best personal designs are made with Legos, and it's for this reason that Brent confines his own public creative work to wordsmithing. When he isn't writing, he hosts an art and design podcast called Beer & Tall Buildings.
Brent lives in the Silverlake neighborhood of Los Angeles with his cat Buster. If you can't reach him by phone or email, he's most likely on a mountaintop somewhere and promises to call you back as soon as he descends.
