18 Seaboard is a contemporary American grill that locally sources ingredients. The chef proprietor of 18 Seaboard wanted the experience of dining at his restaurant to be remembered as a journey. The concept of the space was derived from the action of a walking through the restaurant with unique design elements throughout including Resin Ceiling Panels above that represent “stepping stones”. The program included the design of a bar, private dining room, and an open main dining hall. The journey plays on the experience of spatial envelopes with larger, more voluminous spaces that narrow into smaller areas, then open up again to emphasize the varied spaces within the restaurant.
