Barbara Lazaroff Restaurant Design
The design of Eureka
Lazaroff's acclaimed design for the former Eureka Restaurant & Brewery in West Los Angeles which opened in 1990, achieved a whimsical play on the industrial look with a combination of various bolts, rivets and metallic surfaces throughout the restaurant.
These elements were echoed in the dramatic hand-hewn copper entry doors, seating area, creative lighting, and the exposed kitchen and charcuterie.
Her concept for a fanciful 20-foot long computerized kinetic wall sculpture was a folk-art relief map of Los Angeles landmarks, faces and icons, with the Eureka Brewery and bottling line as its focal point.
Eureka was the cover story for Designers West Magazine in 1990.
