  • Crested Butte, CO

Located at the base of the ski resort in Crested Butte, Colorado, this 1,800 SF restaurant is designed to provide skiers with a seductive respite reminiscent of restaurants not normally associated with bucolic ski towns.  Interior sinuous curves are abstracted from the skiers’ tracks within fresh powder while subliminally referencing the smooth guitar licks of Django Reinhardt; the namesake of the restaurant.

Within the space, a sliding shear curtain can be moved to redefine the seating layout.  A 12’ high wall of wine provides textural relief and adds a layer of kinetic movement as the restaurant owner slides the mobile ladder down the length of the bar to retrieve another bottle of wine. recently named Django’s the #1 restaurant in Crested Butte.
