OohlaBean 2015

OohlaBean (yes, ooh-la-bean) is now open in Driftwood, Texas under the guidance and hospitality of Robin Garrison. Architecture by James Crawley, AIA and the team at HA Architecture, brand by FÖDA and little paint on site by Joe Swec.



Our collaboration with Michael Hsu Office of Architecture, Michael Yates, Keith Kreeger, and Shawn Cirkiel is complete: CH∆VEZ is now open at the Radisson, Austin.

A thorough study in pattern language led us to hybridize letters as glyphs, re-imagining Mesoamerican textile and pottery motifs for the brand of this southwestern style, light flooded, poolside, lake view, restaurant.

Join us for bat watching and a margarita.

This time last year we were in Berlin doing research for Vertskebap. Though bitter cold, wish we could be back there tonight to see the Lichtegrenze release into the air for Mauerfall.

Our Creative Director captured this image of the model at Bernauer Straße memorial. Cheers, Freunde.
