We were happy to be a part of developing one of many pizzerias by Beverly Hills based Starpoint Properties.  It was very important to the them that the wood fired oven be the centerpiece of the design so close attention was paid to this throughout the design process.  The brick oven found itself front and center clad in brick reaching 17' where it is met by a steel canopy creating a more intimate dining experience.  The pizza bar itself is a light marble stone with torched cyprus wood face in a chevron pattern.   The overall aesthetic skews "refined industrial".  A setting with brick tile walls, rich wood clad walls above the bar, cleanly finished walnut cabinetry, booths and banquette seating with bespoke fabric details.  Upon entry, you are greeted by a large wood storage cabinet with a stunning, glowing V53 logo built into and displaying the wood proudly as a design element.  The dining room has 3 roll up doors to allow the outside in on nice day.  Adjacent to the kitchen you will find a gorgeous custom designed chefs table under a dazzling red chandelier.
