Galaxy Taco of La Jolla California has quickly become a local favorite with its delicious food, airy atmosphere and bright, joyful decor.
When the owners were creating their space, they reached out to Indoteak Design to create a custom bar top made of 100% reclaimed teak wood as well as a custom back-splash and reclaimed teak tile for the facade of the bar. The result is one of the most beautiful spaces in San Diego County.
The tile reflects the local surroundings, which in this case, is the Pacific Ocean and La Jolla Shores, located just steps away from the restaurants door.
Located in the Windansea Beach neighborhood of La Jolla California, The “Bali House” is one of the most unique structures in this community. The 9,300 sq. ft. custom home built in 2010 was inspired after the owners many travels to Indonesia. To achieve the look and feel of their dream home, Frank and his wife Amy spared no expense to create this masterpiece.
Frank and Amy Ragen decided they wanted a home with the look and feel of Indonesia. That meant the wood of choice was teak wood. Reclaimed teak to be exact. After having difficulty sourcing the rare wood, they soon had all the reclaimed teak wood they needed.
Owners Ted Cochrane and Doug Ritz have spent the better part of three years pursuing their dream of opening a restaurant that reflects their personalities and their connection to the community, but as they say, nothing comes easy.
After a string of setbacks as well as getting their building (built in 1947) up-to-code, the pair could have quit a half-dozen times and nobody would have blamed them. But they are cut from a different cloth, and after taking some time to reflect and learn, the pair moved forward in their pursuit, keeping the dream alive by staying focused and positive.
Recently, San Diego Home and Garden Magazine(May 2017) featured a home that was a perfect blend of contemporary/rustic with a nod towards recycled green material. Since Indoteak Design’s engineered reclaimed teak flooring is certified 100% reclaimed teak. The owners, real estate agent Susan Botticelli and her fiance, contractor Monte Mattson, decided to incorporate reclaimed teak flooring into the master bedroom.
