Market, an upscale and well-established restaurant located in Del Mar, California, was ready for a renovation. The owners approached BASILE to provide a look that would better reflect their more contemporary offerings with additional emphasis on sound absorption, flexible lighting, finishes and entry. The installation of a custom, intensely mid-century door system announced the update and camouflaged an adjacent utility door. Inside, the ceiling was lowered and studded with over 200 pin lights. The private dining room was completely recreated and opened up, enlarging the space, and the lounge’s sushi bar was replaced with a wood burning brick oven for breads and meats. Rich, eggplant-hued finishes were used throughout, adding comfort and warmth.
