Hinterhof Restaurant & Biergarten
Hinterhof is a German restaurant, bar and beer garden in the Highland Park Neighborhood of Los Angeles, California. The project goal was to capture the spirit of traditional German food establishments in a contemporary Southern California design culture and geographic climate. To heighten the social impact, the garden is placed adjacent the boulevard and the restaurant is situated to the rear. Planted with native species, the garden envelops visitors in the ongoing conversations upon entry. The interiors are designed to engage the lineage of the beer hall through the material selection and detailing. Tables, display cases, and lighting was designed and fabricated to complete the overall impression of the space.
