Petros Los Olivos
Completed: August 2009
Located within the Fess Parker Wine Country Inn and Spa in Los Olivos, California, Petros Los Olivos is our second restaurant interior for Petros. Our design work consisted of the transformation of the hotel’s existing restaurant, bar and lobby space.
In contrast to the Manhattan Beach location, Petros Los Olivos is located in the wine region of North Santa Barbara County. A variation of the design of the Manhattan Beach restaurant, its design draws off of its inland hillside, and its more rustic terrain. Whereas at the beach we used light materials, the palate at Los Olivos is in general richer, with darker woods used for bar and casework, oak flooring, and warmer accents throughout. Our approach in designing a series of restaurants for this client is to keep the design integrity of the original, while subtlety varying the form and materiality based on its changing locality.
