La Vie is a 9,800 sqm restaurant in Washington D.C. It showcases a coastal story and Mediterranean lifestyle, with a visual narrative that explores the building’s structural shell. The vision for this space was to create a story with four unique dining areas – the main dining area that is light and airy with recycled glass, the conservatory with the dark gothic palette of moss, the luxurious private chandelier room with jewel tones and a dramatic waterfront terrace. It is a celebration of life!
Statement of the jury
The restaurant surprises the patron with four differently designed areas, each of which impresses with its high-quality design and engenders an exclusive atmosphere. The result overall is a remarkable design with many loving details that make each area unique.
