Farina Pizza
A project reflecting the same level of detail found in the restaurants celebrated culinary creations, Farina Pizza is custom work from the front door handle to the wood diamond patterned back bar. KMD worked in collaboration with architect Brett Terpeluk to create a warm and modern environment featuring generous use of Bay Area Black Acacia and blackened steel.

Farina Rooftop
The Farina rooftop booths celebrate the time honored traditions of Italian outdoor dining and cozy San Francisco cafe culture. Combining a formal dining experience with a casual aesthetic, Venetian marble slab tables are offset by the warmth of wood benches. The design of the Monterey Cypress benches were painstakingly articulated to ergonomically cradle guests, inspiring them to relax and linger over their meals, while enjoying the weather and energetic din of activity the Mission district is famous for.

Chapel Hill Coffee
Rafael Vizcaino, responsible for one of Kyle's first professional portfolio photoshoots 15 years ago, circled back to the KMD shop when he needed unique details to flesh out the small space for his new collaboration Chapel Hill with San Francisco coffee mavens Boor Bridges. KMD opened up the small space by fabricating and installing a steel picture window that lifts parallel to the street using a linear ball drive actuator mechanism uniting the shop with the bustling financial district. In addition, a monterey cypress mobile bar table and matching wall plaque was built to stay in keeping with the utilitarian feel of the café while creating a sense of warmth.

Levi’s Kiosks
The shop team worked around the clock to realize, fabricate, and install two modular, reconfigurable, pop up stores meant to display Levi's special projects in only three weeks’ time. In a patented thoughtful KMD detail, a nod was given to American garment history by sourcing and panelizing reclaimed wood from a 150 year old Van Heusen garment factory. Though the structures were commissioned to be semi-permanent, they include tracked sliding glass doors, electrical LED lighting and can be disassembled allowing them nine or more lives.
Whitaker Stairs
The aim of this stairwell was to maintain the home’s design scheme with a focus on safety. An exposed triangular stringer section supports the stairs, while uniting visually with a heavy duty, stainless steel mesh guard rail infill. Combined with industrial shipping container plywood for the steps, the structure allows light to travel through the space while containing children and tired adults.
Ligne Roset
KMD’s first San Francisco commission was to design and build temporary showrooms to effectively display wares for design luminaries Bulthaup kitchens and Linge Roset furniture. Still in use 15 years later, it is a testament to the KMD philosophy of build custom, build once.

Dawson Clinton Stairs
Commonly, it is the minimal concept that requires the most creativity and innovation. The challenge in creating the Dawson+Clinton stairs was to design a sound minimalist staircase with no visible support. A KMD fabricated steel structure hidden within the Walnut steps provides the support required to pull off this stark beauty.

Littlefield Lofts
A complete conversion that beautifully showcases the modern design aesthetic prevalent during the original dot com. Conceived in collaboration with Jeff Burris of Studio 12, the Littlefield loft features a one of a kind, translucent curtain wall fabricated of glass and Japanese film. Highlighted by an interior crafted entirely of aluminum and Birch plywood, this loft still looks current 15 years and another tech boom later.
