Brazen restaurant opens

We’re happy to announce that Brazen restaurant opened a little while ago, and we are very proud of how its design turned out.  It’s just off the corner of Tennyson and 38th in the old Elitch’s neighborhood.  The owner wanted to create a contemporary interior that conveyed a welcoming, neighborhood-eatery vibe.  Stand-out materials for the space include its polished concrete floor, bent steel shelving and lighting fixtures, and a dark wood finish using the Japanese shou-sugi-ban burnt wood technique.

As we’ve done on other projects, we jumped in on some of the finishes for the restaurant.  As you can see from the pictures below, we tested out the burnt wood technique in the parking lot behind our office.  We used a gas burner to torch the wood, and then scraped off some of the excess charring to expose some of the natural wood beneath.  We also took on the job of painting the overhead bent-steel lighting pendant, creating a distressed marquee sign look to reference the area’s amusement park past.
