Restaurant 659 that located in Los Angeles, California, United States , was designed by Platform for Architecture + Research, During the day, the curvilinear facade functions sculpturally-pedestrians catch glimpses of their own reflections in the glass and are drawn to its unusual curvature. Dramatic Southern California daylight casts a shimmering aura into the restaurant as sunlight bounces from one interior space to the next.
At night, the floor-to-ceiling glass facade glows from within. Restaurant guests are viewed by pedestrians in a space that is stripped to the bare essentials. A new one-pour concrete floor and white curving walls washed by continuous recessed lighting envelop spare and ethereal dining areas. Servers move efficiently through the space while visitors lounge on a series of custom-fitted dining furniture made from cast resin, wood, and aluminium. The restaurant features a main dining area, private dining room, dining mezzanine, lounge, bar, two kitchens, a manager’s office, and terrace dining.
