Design for El Torito’s Redondo Beach location integrates the best of two worlds—the brand’s family-oriented, hacienda-style ambiance within an exceptional location on the Redondo Beach Pier. To facilitate operations as well as let guests enjoy a unique vantage point, interior and proposed rooftop patio spaces were redesigned for open site lines of the beach and Pacific Ocean. Full height windows facilitate views and natural light along the length of the restaurant while heavy timber ceiling beams convey a cozy, home-like aesthetic. A range of textiles that merge the hispanic and coastal cultures were utilized within each of the seating area configurations. These complimentary palettes and furnishings shift from dining area to dining area to offer new experiences with every visit and facilitate options for private events.
