In Situ inhabits street-front space in the SFMoMA. Its design represents a unique intersection of art, design, food and community. Spaces are designed to engage all of the senses with an emphasis on tactility and acoustics. The interior shell is left raw and exposed, which provides a backdrop for discreetly placed "artifacts" including commissioned art, custom-designed lighting, custom furniture and a sculptural wood ceiling. These "artifacts" are analogous to ingredients in their various states of refinement and are strategically employed to engage the guest’s physical experience.
