Tallula's Restaurant
Santa Monica, CA

Housed in a former Japanese restaurant, Tallula’s converts a dark, tired space into a bright and airy Mexican restaurant just off Santa Monica beach. Inspired by the informality of Tulum’s beach shacks meets southern California, the space was transformed using a coastal palette that references more traditional Spanish haciendas to the more modern work of Mexican architect Luis Barragán.
