CCS Architecture designed Bazille restaurant in the new Nordstrom Del Amo store in Torrance, CA. Located prominently above the main entry to the store on the 2nd floor with an open glass façade, decorative sun screening and exterior terrace dining, the restaurant has a strong presence from the street and commanding views towards the Pacific Ocean to the west.  A short escalator ride up from the Nordstrom Mall entry of the newly constructed section of the Del Amo Fashion Center, the restaurant has become a local destination for shoppers and dining guests alike.  

The Nordstrom Bazille concept is a full service restaurant and bar specializing in local, sustainable ingredients exemplified in California cuisine.  The restaurant’s floor to ceiling glass, bringing in natural light and framing exterior views through the restaurants floor to ceiling glass façade.  The restaurant’s main dining area is accented by a large decorative illuminated hung ceiling element.  The ceiling is the signature piece of the space, composed of a random grid of walnut wood fins and diagonal brass accents.  The ceiling is visible from the store and from the street below, creating intrigue to draw guests into the space.  

Flanking dining on either end is an open but glassed in exhibition style kitchen and on the opposite end an internally illuminate mirror back bar display wall.  These large focal features, create the backdrop of food and beverage experience. Wood banquette walls with brass accents, wooden fins mimicking the exterior sun screening at the booths, and the monolithic slab stone bar exemplify the detailing carried throughout.

The overall design aims to create an unexpected restaurant experience within the store’s retail environment.  The restaurant interiors aim to be fashionable and timeless, with a sense of warmth and hospitality.  Materials like satin bronze glass and mirror,stained European oak, bronze metal, and Calcutta marble work with the clean modern aesthetic of the store.  The openness between the store and restaurant provide an opportunity for food and fashion to coincide, which is very fitting of the Fashion Center and the Nordstrom brand as a whole.
