What would you say are the characteristics of a Dan Brunn design?
Oh boy, those are some major legends and just to be equated to that is humbling and difficult to respond to.
What I hope is that people will remember the humanity of my design. The fact that each project is distilled to its absolute minimum yet is totally functional and timeless.
I’m eager to be older and see where this all leads to! Give us the Dan Brunn guide to LA. What are your favorite spots these days?
Well, you’d probably find me at Jones Hollywood. This has to be one of my favorite restaurants, it has this old world vibe while at the same time being totally rock ‘n’ roll. Maybe one of the only jukeboxes in Los Angeles that has Oasis!
Cafe Stella is another one of my favorites, with a perfect Steak Frites.
And yes, another is a space we designed: Coffee for Sasquatch. Not only are all the coffee and tea drinks incredible, but they have the best croissants in town. Plus the space, of course.
Finally...Feel free to briefly give us some insight on what you’re working on next and what websites social media handles we can find you at.
So you can find us at @dbarchitecture @bridgehousela and my personal daily account @dbrunn009 where you might find me singing, driving or just goofing around with my dog.
We’re working on some special hospitality projects in Beverly Hills and Sonoma right now. These are dream projects of mine, that unfortunately I can’t elaborate on much more than that.
So patience! One will open by next holiday season though.
Plus, we have some incredible new houses underway, on par with Bridge House. Our clients are so awesome and I’m always so grateful to them!
Thanks for the time, amazing questions and inspiration.
