About the project
Cala is a Mediterranean restaurant located in Scottsdale, Arizona. Named after a street in Mallorca, Cala was aesthetically designed to complement the modern coastal cocktails and cuisine. Transporting you out of the desert and onto a beach in the Mediterranean, the restaurant using natural hues, textures, and materials, and decorated with lush greenery. With celebrity chef, Beau MacMillan, at the heart of the restaurant, this space will surely be a destination for locals and travelers alike.
The team at House of Form was very intentional about creating a space that would transport guests as soon as they walked in. The space was designed to reflect the merge of two worlds: the sanded, textured desert and the fresh and airy coast. To complement the chef’s fresh cuisine, they incorporated lighter wood tones, neutral textures and materials, and lush greenery, attributing to the coastal environment. The lime wash walls give the space a subtle depth without making the space feel busy or overwhelming. The handcrafted terracotta pots, native to Arizona, are displayed in repetitive and elongated limewashed arches at the entrance, feeling as if you are stepping from a southwestern desert onto a European beach.
