Cafe Interior Design | Eltana Bagel Cafe | Seattle | Washington | Graham Baba Architects

Restaurant Interior Design | Osteria La Spiga | Capitol Hill | Seattle | Washington | Graham Baba Architects

Interior space-planning and design project for family-owned Italian restaurant, Osteria La Spiga.

Through close collaboration with the contractors and local craft and tradespeople, many project elements were reclaimed and fabricated from local sources. The custom metal armature above the bar was fabricated right next door at 12th Avenue Iron....more

Saltimporten Canteen is a lunch restaurant seating up to approximately 90 people, located in a 160 m2 unit on the ground level dockside of Saltimporten’s main building.

All the furniture was designed specifically for the project by Lindvall A & D.
