Located in the historic Berkeley neighborhood of Denver, Wendell’s puts a modern spin on a traditional breakfast diner. When designing the space our main goal was to transform the interiors into a space reminiscent of an old school diner without losing the original charm of the building. In collaboration with Scout Interiors, original brick, custom walnut casework, hand-packed glass fiber reinforced concrete counter-tops were the primary materials chosen to build out the restaurant, creating a warm and inviting space for gathering and sharing a cup of coffee and breakfast with friends. A mural, painted by Evan Hecox, depicting the trolley station that used to travel through the Berkeley neighborhood flanks the back of the restaurant providing a “sense of place” for diners.
