    Los Angeles, CA
    2002

    Located on Hollywood’s famed Sunset Boulevard, the project transformed a dilapidated craftsman house into a high-end eatery and watering hole. Channeling the glory days of Hollywood, from when Rudolph Valentino lived in the home he called “Falcon’s Lair” (for which the restaurant is named), to the Rat Pack, the Brat Pack, and today’s “celebutantes,” the design calls to the voyeuristic behavior of popular “Industry” hangouts.

    The restaurant is composed of a series of related but distinct spaces, much as in a film. A long ramp psychologically transports the patrons from the grittiness of Sunset Boulevard to the restaurant’s main entrance. The dining and bar area functions as a lounge, taking the theater as its primary design metaphor. From raised seating areas, diners can view – and be viewed by – the action in the lounge. Dark and earthy materials combine with low ceilings, and even lower light levels, to create an intimate mood.

    For many, the outdoor patio is the final destination in this carefully choreographed sequence. A calm space with tall white walls, a large fireplace, and a series of wood bleachers, the purity and lightness of this space are in direct contrast to the darkness of the interior.
