Orson, celebrated chef Elizabeth Falkner’s destination lounge and restaurant, is situated in an historic SOMA warehouse built of concrete, steel and timber, originally housing a steel foundry. A 30 seat marble topped oval bar anchors the main level and is set within soaring ceilings and in-tact industrial mechanisms of the past. The design weaves new architectural spaces and elements within the old, creating a variety of spaces and experiences, some small and intimate, some large and social. Spatially dynamic and expressive of structure, materials and craft, like the chef’s food, it is always creative, at times hard edged and experimental, but also familiar and comfortable.
