M . Y. C H I N A SAN FRANCISCO, CALIFORNIA BCV’s reputation for bringing a Western design aesthetic to hospitality projects in Asia takes a twist, with a new San Francisco restaurant that brings East to West. M.Y. China is a 7,000 square foot, 200-seat contemporary Chinese fine dining restaurant with exhibition kitchen, located in the Westfield San Francisco Centre. This innovative restaurant is conceived and operated by awardwinning Chinese chef and television host Martin Yan. The restaurant is designed as a reflection of Chef Yan’s life and experiences, and centers on the social celebrations associated with enjoying Chinese food. The kitchen is turned inside-out to blend the cooking and dining environments, and to create a theatrical backdrop to the dining experience. Dramatic wok cookery and noodle pulling take center stage, with colorful ingredients and meticulous stacks of serveware framed as display elements. The design blends patterns, textures, and materials found in China in a distinctly modern American way, in the use of various tones and textures of stone, wood, porcelain and steel.

CRUSH 29 ROSEVILLE, CALIFORNIA Crush 29 is a 9,000 square foot wine-focused restaurant that looks to the Napa Valley for design inspiration. The complete experience begins on approach to the restaurant’s exterior entry, allowing the tone of the environment and experience to be set well before one steps through the doors. The simple and timeless facade, made of Napa Valley Tufa Stone, reflects the restaurant’s unique connection to the Napa Valley. The centerpiece of the restaurant is the circular bar lighted by a sculptural element fashioned from thousands of mica disks, each unique in its color and translucence. The interior of the restaurant continues the wine country theme, with rounded booths fashioned like wine barrels, rustic stone walls and floors, and several fireplaces. Two wine caves serve as private function rooms for up to 50, and the wine library serves as a smaller private dining room.

ANTHOLOGY SAN DIEGO, CALIFORNIA Anthology is a modern supper club located in downtown San Diego. The legacy of jazz is framed here for the next generation, with Jazz, Blues, Soul and R&B performers and seating on multiple levels. The club also features small lounges, with the warm, casual elegance inherent to Southern California. It is a unique venue, as dinner is served during the performance, allowing patrons to enjoy the simultaneous celebration of food and music. The long and narrow site presented an unusual shape for viewing a performance. Rather than fight the proportions, they are accentuated for dramatic effect by compressing the space and emphasizing its verticality, which creates sightlines that allow people-watching as well as viewing the performance. A dramatic sculptural concrete stair connects the three open levels. The interior design of the space blends wood, metal and strings to make one feel like the room itself is an active instrument. Bleached woods, soft ivory leather, blue velvet curtains, and shimmering metallic curtain reflect Anthology’s unique location in a seaside city.

H U D S O N E AT S AT B R O O K F I E L D P L A C E Located within Brookfield Place in the heart of Manhattan’s financial district, the 30,000 sq. ft. Hudson Eats celebrates the unique offerings of the Empire State’s foodshed against the stunning backdrop of the Hudson River. BCV and AvroKO collaborated on the design of a modern food hall, which features the creations of 14 of the city’s leading artisanal food purveyors. Hudson Eats is an interpretation of the classic New York Market Hall, including the Washington Market, which once stood near the site and served lower Manhattan. The interior is defined by handmade tile walls, steel portals, marble and wood tables, and custom designed seating and lighting, creating an elegant and functional dining atmosphere. The guiding principals of craft, refinement and quality set the tone for the artisanal purveyors, who have designed their own stalls to fit into their spaces within the market – a process choreographed by BCV and AvroKO.

Artisan purveyors Tyler Florence, Equator Coffee, Vino Volo and others fill the market with high quality products, providing ”Food from the Earth for Travelers in the Sky.” The market hall features a wall system of buff colored terra cotta planks. A cork-clad ceiling, elm wood fixturing and shelving and concrete countertops and floor provide a tactile, earthy touchstone to the palette. Blackened steel and brushed stainless details introduce an industrial edge. The green color of the tile wall at the exhibition prep line continues in the project’s graphics and packaging.

F R A N C I S C A N E S TAT E S RUTHERFORD, CALIFORNIA BCV was the Design Architect for this new Tasting Room and Visitors’ Center for Franciscan Estates Winery in Napa Valley. Franciscan holds the philosophy that “the wines are the elegant expression of the vineyards, giving unique voice to the terroir on which they are grown.” BCV’s design seeks to give architectural expression to this philosophy by creating a building that is memorable and fits comfortably into its vineyard setting. The great tasting room is the portal to what may be explored beyond, including the 10,000 bottle wine library, and the clubrooms, which are designed for the members of Franciscan’s wine club.

CAKEBREAD WINERY EAST ADDITION RUTHERFORD, CALIFORNIA Located in the heart of Napa Valley, Cakebread is one of Napa’s oldest family-run wineries. The new 10,000 square foot addition blends seamlessly with the existing 43,000 square foot main building by ensuring a continuity of form and materials palette. The architectural style relies on a restrained use of natural materials and textures that harmonize with the surrounding vines and cherished vegetable garden. The main floor of the addition consists of a large barrel storage room, a light filled state- of-the-art wine lab, and a series of private tasting rooms, each with their own view to the vineyards just outside. On the second floor, the new Wine Club room provides dramatic views eastward over the grapes to Howell Mountain beyond. Continuing with the natural modern aesthetic first established by original architect William Turnbull, this winery addition was BCV’s first collaboration with architect Don Brandenburger, who designed the majority of the buildings at this Rutherford site.

FAT ’ S A S I A B I S T R O FOLSOM, CALIFORNIA Sacramento’s celebrated restaurateurs, the Fat Family, engaged BCV to create an Asian bistro with a goal of elevating the typical American Chinese restaurant experience. This free-standing, 9,000 sf restaurant incorporated several program elements including casual dining, private dining areas, a dim sum bar, a retail/take-out food area and an exterior terrace. Inspiration for the architecture was found in the historic royal palaces and temples found throughout East Asia. Richly stained mahogany doors and windows, imported limestone counters, red mosaic tiles, integral color plaster, custom light fixtures and gem-toned ceramic pots lush with plant life all combine to accent the simple organized flow of the interior. An intricate hardwood screen carved by Bali artist Made Budiasa creates a unique backdrop behind the golden Buddha.

ARIA BEIJING, CHINA This 10,000 square foot restaurant and bar is conceptualized as the western expatriate's "home away from home" and is organized along the metaphorical spaces of a house. The ground floor introduces the strong axial organization of the project: a clear shot from the lounge bar through a fireplace lounge to the powerful form of the central staircase and wine bar. The upper level contains the main restaurant and continues the "house" theme with semi-private rooms around the crown of the central stair. The stringerless staircase rises within a mahogany enclosure. The structure's skin erodes from top to bottom, the upper floor shielded by solid panels, wine storage at mid-level, and an open stand-up wine counter at its base. Simple stylized forms, custom furnishings, signature steel-blue velvet drapes, and classical images mark the project aesthetic.

SCHROEDER’S SAN FRANCISCO, CALIFORNIA BCV was responsible for the renovation and rehabilitation of the historic German beer hall Schroeder’s in San Francisco’s Financial District. The renovation brings a modern feel to the 120year old restaurant without losing the characteristics – such as the original rosewood bar – that made it a celebrated downtown San Fancisco institution. BCV worked with the restaurant’s new owners to reorganize the 5,000 sq. ft. space into two halves, with the front portion utilizing communal tables to retain a beer hall feel and the rear half taking on a more dining-focused atmosphere. The dining portion of the restaurant features an updated menu, with Cal-German innovations like corn and tomato spatzle, beets with pumpernickel and goat cheese, and a wiener schnitzel accompanied by fava beans and preserved lemon on offer.

B E L C A M P O M E AT C O . LARKSPUR, CALIFORNIA Belcampo Meat Co.’s Marin Country Mart shop expresses the future of sustainable beef, pork and poultry production in California by combining the traditional butcher shop with a restructured café in a dynamic dance of two programs in a single unique environment. The traditional butcher shop here is reinvented with a combination of ceramic and concrete tiles. The butcher counter morphs into the restaurant cook line and counter bar, while the environment changes to that of Marin walnut and earth tones. Charcuterie drawings adorning the walls speak to Belcampo’s commitment to artisan production. The design of the dining room and butcher shop both play off the dynamic interior spaces found at the Marin Country Mart– accentuated in Belcampo orange. Belcampo raises and processes its own animals and produce on a farm in Gazelle, California, with views of majestic Mt. Shasta. They are giving a new meaning to the farm to table movement. At Belcampo’s butcher shop and restaurant, BCV Architects have worked to give this concept a physical manifestation. BCV was the architect for Belcampo’s production kitchen and offices on their farm in Gazelle.

The Market Hall, a contemporary low-slung metal shed building, and the terra cotta block-clad Wine Pavilion take their cues from classic agricultural building typology, and use pre-engineered metal building technology for their unique open-span interiors. Located in a flood plain, the building by necessity sits atop a podium, which created opportunity for a wrap-around promenade encouraging market activity at the exterior. The exterior is made up of durable, industrial materials such as terra cotta block, board-formed concrete, steel and glass. The Market’s northern deck takes full advantage of the site’s proximity to the River.

PENINSULA HOUSE P O R T O L A VA L L E Y, C A L I F O R N I A This 5,100 square foot residence is organized around a majestic Blue Oak tree, which occupies the only flat portion of this one-acre site. With dramatic views of a Windy Hill to the southwest, the house is designed to respond directly to the natural features of the site. While breaking down the building’s overall massing, the various components of the house – garage, main house, master wing and guest house at the rear – form edges of a formal courtyard anchored by the heritage Blue Oak. The spaces of the main house simultaneously look inward to the quiet tree and canopied courtyard, and outward to the dramatic distant views. Tucked into the site’s hillside, and locked into the landscape by the great room’s loggia and terrace wall, the house conceals its story scale and allows for a poolside setting to be elegantly carved into the cascading terrain, shielded from neighbors’ views and the building approach.

Tamalpais, and sunsets over the Marin Headlands, this “Mediterranean Chic” residence has multiple outdoor living areas. This three-story home is anchored into its steep hillside site with hand-cut stone walls, elegant gardens and fountains. The upper outdoor loggia has a fireplace and radiant floors to extend the seasons for outdoor living even when the fog rolls in. The lower level features an outdoor pizza oven, a fire pit, a pool and Roman spa. A stone and plaster spiral stair gracefully but purposefully moves guests between the top and bottom “public” floors and encourage them to bypass the middle “private” bedroom floor. Walls and ceilings are plastered throughout the home, including custom plaster air vents integrated into the plaster surfaces. All exterior doors, windows, balconies and louvered awnings were custom-designed out of steel and bronze.

RANCH HOUSE NORTHERN CALIFORNIA Set amidst the vastness of great oaks and rolling hills of Northern California, this house serves as headquarters for a working cattle ranch. Its form and construction evoke the history of both the California adobe and local ranch styles with thick, whitewashed stucco walls providing a solid sense of enclosure from the openness of the landscape, and metal roofing recalling the vernacular of traditional barn structures in the area. The site design formalizes a haphazard arrangement of existing buildings in order to create an organized compound. The project’s layout is an L-shape, with two simple rectangular buildings. These structures are knit together by traditional circulation galleries, representative of the California adobe style, to relieve the inner sanctums of the residence from the summer sun and heat. The north wing houses guest rooms, while the south wing contains the main living and gathering spaces. At the corner of the “L” is a two-story board and batten wood study, art room and observation deck.

CITY HOUSE SAN FRANCISCO, CALIFORNIA BCV Architects combined two modern condominium units into one in San Francisco’s historic Jackson Square neighborhood, creating a quintessential urban home for a family of four. The home features a grand main salon that is 40’ square, showcasing dramatic cityscape views - this room is the social center of the home. The salon serves as living room, music room, dining room and gallery for the family’s evolving collection of photographs. Opening off this room is a skylit kitchen featuring contrasting Wenge cabinetry and Carrara marble countertops. An elegant breakfast alcove completes the room. On the other side of the grand salon is the library, which is painted persimmon orange to provide a strong contrast to the subdued whites and silvers of the salon. The main hall of the home is treated as a long linear gallery, featuring both threedimensional objects and works on paper. Each bedroom and bathroom reflects the personality of the individual family members.

HISTORIC HOUSE ROSS, CALIFORNIA Located in the hills of Marin County, this residence was built in 1906 by John White, the brotherin-law of Bernard Maybeck, with subsequent renovations to the house and gardens. The most recent garden design was conceived by notable landscape architect Thomas Church. The goal for this renovation and addition was to reinforce the design approaches of the original architects and to respect the character, proportions and detailing of the main house, while addressing lifestyle requirements of a contemporary family of five. The rear of the house was redesigned on all three levels with a light-filled breezeway added to connect the main level and the guest quarters. A roof access deck was enclosed and now functions as an exercise room off the master suite. BCV collaborated with the landscape architect on material selection and solutions to the challenging level changes at the garden. The new pool house and outdoor shower satisfy the functional needs of the historic circular pool, and a new outdoor kitchen elegantly provides modern day outdoor entertainment.

P R I VAT E R E S I D E N C E SONOMA, CALIFORNIA The Owners chose this site because they wanted to live in a home that captured the agricultural heritage of Sonoma. This residential compound incorporates an existing barn and uses building forms found on many farms and dairies throughout the Sonoma countryside. Simple vernacular farmhouse elements include milk-painted wood siding, wide-plank wood flooring, a large country kitchen with wood-fired cooking and an open pantry.

The many covered porches encourage

outdoor living and are critical for providing shade and ventilation during the hot summers.
