Located in Seattle's Ballard neighborhood, Copine occupies a prominent corner of a mixed-use building with large windows on three sides. Traditional and contemporary furniture elements are combined with reclaimed and adapted materials to create a refined, warm material palette. The unfolding of the visitor experience — from bar to dining area and chef's table — begins as guests are greeted at the entry foyer and marketplace area. Custom casework with open shelves reveals the dining area beyond, while the reclaimed wood cladding on the host station adds character and depth. The long bar, featuring reclaimed wood and topped with a deep metallic shade of Richlite, acts as an intimate space for dining and drinks.
