For a while now we’ve been eyeing Botanica, a bright new eatery, market, and food magazine in Silver Lake, California by editors and cooks Heather Sperling and Emily Fiffer. (Their healthful but glamorous plateau de fruits de terre is poised to become the most Instagrammed dish of the summer.) But beyond the duo’s “no-rules,” veggie-forward food, it’s the backstory of the restaurant itself that has us wanting to visit. Ready to “roll up [their] sleeves and build a space of our own” (and after admiring Paris eateries designed by David Rager and Cheri Messerli of Weekends), Sperling and Fiffer asked the Weekends team whether they could recommend a design firm in California. Conveniently, Rager and Messerli had just relocated back to LA—only “a few blocks from what the future Botanica home,” Rager says. So the team, with architect David Freeland at FreelandBuck, set to work transforming a “drop-ceiling dank liquor store” into the most buzzed-about restaurant in town, back garden included. Here’s how they did it. The space is actually two buildings: the former “totally decrepit 1940s liquor cave” in front, and a two-story former apartment building behind, connected by what is now a patio. “When we first saw the space we were excited and scared,” Sperling says. “We saw the skylight (broken and covered with a tarp) and the bottle-glass windows (cemented over but still visible), and envisioned opening everything up and letting light pour into the space.” To transform the interiors from dark to airy, Freeland opened up the eight-foot drop ceiling, removed an unusable mezzanine, and replaced the back wall with glass. Weekends took color inspiration from Europe for the space: “This being our first project in California after living in France for five years, we wanted to bring a bit of our home in Paris back here, while also bringing out subtle hints of the places that the flavors of Botanica’s food come from,” Messerli says. “We were thinking about Yves Klein blue, Greece, and the faded dusty pink tones of Morocco.”
