Right on Los Angeles’ famous Wilshire Boulevard sits the Petersen Museum. Dedicated to automotive history, the museum engages with a critical aspect of life in the American West Coast.

The renovation of the restaurant has been conceived as a disruptive intrusion in the otherwise homogenic building.

Mirror walls, mirror columns and a mirror ceiling that doubles the lighting fixtures, are all deliberate attempts to make the space harder to grasp. Outside, the terrace is imagined as an oasis: an intimate garden sheltered by lush palm trees in the middle of the concrete jungle of Los Angeles.
