Auburn is a contemporary rustic restaurant in Los Angeles. The establishment is built by LA-based architect Oonagh Ryan, while the ultra-cozy interior of the fine dining destination is overseen by desgin duo Jon and Maša Kleinhample who are the founders of local studio Klein Agency.
The aesthetics of the contemporary rustic restaurant are rooted in homey minimalism. The layout is open concept and the kitchen remains open, revealing to guests the preparation of their dishes. The interior is dominated by wooden accents that surely softened the vibe. When arranging the indoors of Auburn, Jon and Maša Kleinhample looked for inspiration to the "dinner parties held in their Belgium home." Thus, the restaurant receives a quaint aesthetic that is paired up with a European flair.
