Simple warmth

I was scanning through some images on Architectural Record’s website today, and was immediately struck by this project by Bentel & Bentel Architects of the Craft Atlanta restaurant in Atlanta, Georgia.

On a(nother) dreary day, the instant warmth of this extensive use of natural wood has a great ambiance.  I also love the naked lightbulb look in the third image.  There is a gorgeous hotel bar here in Wisconsin (the Iron Horse – unfortunately there are no images on their website that show this section of the bar) that uses similar fixtures, but in a more random placement.  The effect is just stunning, and surprisingly does not create a ton of glare.  Just goes to show, sometimes less really IS more!
