Twenty Five Lusk Restaurant is the result of a mind-blowing design conversion of a 1917 smokehouse and meat-processing facility into a contemporary, sophisticated gathering space. The new restaurant located in San Francisco has a total of 265 seats and includes a modern bar. The masterminds behind this project are the people of CCS Architecture, who designed a place with a unique atmosphere.
Twenty Five Lusk occupies the first and second floor of the 15,000 square foot warehouse. Several design elements turn this place into a very original venue. Fireplaces that descend from the ceiling, exposed wooden beams and brick walls create a space that is aesthetically pleasing.
According to the architecture, the overall approach was to set up “a notable contrast between the dramatic vertical space and the single-height areas, allowing guests to experience the restaurant in its totality while providing intimate spaces to explore. The interior emphasizes a counterpoint between the new palette of polished stainless steel, glass, white plaster, leather, mirror, faux fur, and slate and the existing elements of brick, concrete and rough-sawn timber“
Socializing is encouraged, but so are romantic dinners, in secluded parts of the restaurant. The lighting is not too strong, contributing to the overall coziness of the space.
