Dryft is an oceanside restaurant located within a new beachfront multifamily development and reflects the restaurateur’s desire to revitalize the area with a destination dining hotspot. Drawing inspiration from its oceanfront setting, the design of Dryft is imbued with aquatic motifs that complement the space’s views of the Atlantic Ocean. The color palette, anchored by tonal grays, is awash with cool blue hues and warm tones of teak and walnut, creating a space that is at once invigorating and intimate. Shapes throughout bring to mind ocean elements, from the coastal shingle-inspired walnut paneling to the fish scale tile, to the net-like illuminated aluminum mesh. A custom graffiti-style tuna fish mural, inspired by conversations with the chef about seasonal menu specialties, animates the space and doubles as public art visible from the new plaza. Globe and pearl drop pendants are suspended from 12’ ceilings, and call to mind illuminated air bubbles, providing an eye-catching contextual reference to both patrons and those passing by on their way to or from the beach.
