Tower 42, Playa Del Rey

Tower 42 restaurant is the recycling of a faded Playa Del Rey steakhouse. The name comes from the local lifeguard tower, and is the first of many moves aimed at working the building back into the contextual landscape. It features a layout reworked to be view-sensitive, finishes that evoke a beach lifestyle, and counters recycled from framing removed to create courtyards.
