The 2018 rd+d awards

Best Full-Service Restaurant Design (Check Average More Than $50) 


LoggerHead by YOD 05


Logger Head is a speakeasy designed to capitalize on its setting — a building that dates to 1886. Arched domes connect guests to the history and character of the building, and hidden amber lights highlight the ancient masonry construction. The jazzy atmosphere is highlighted by custom lamps that look like old microphones designed by Andrey Galushka. Our judges were taken with the “innovative, unique design,” the “very strong attention to detail” and “good use of lighting.” The judges ultimately declared, “they did a really good job” with the design.
