INSIDE/OUTSIDE: gjelina’s great design
Posted by Sal Taylor Kydd on 3/17/2009

SAL: OK so this is a little inside baseball. But for those of you who live near LA or are planning to visit anytime soon, there are many reasons to recommend a trip to Gjelina’s restaurant on Abbot Kinney. Sure the food is great - tasty small plates and great thin crust pizzas - but for us design-junkies the decor is really worth checking out. Think French-bistro-come-industrial-chic. I was told that the design owes much to the talents of architects Marshall & Agriam, also based on Abbot Kinney just a stone’s throw away. I’ve yet to find out more but am set to email to try and find out where they get their wonderful (round) tables. Stay tuned.

Correction - Thank you to the folks over at Gejelina’s for getting back to me with this correction on the folks behind the design. Marshall & Agriam were not the designers of Gjelina, it was designed by Studio Peel and Modern Arc Inc (owned by Crystal Wynn and Milo Garcia) Mr Marshall and Mr Agriam were former employees of Studio Peel and a part of the design team.
