Named after a tiny beach cove street, Cala Road in Mallorca, with impressive views of the Mediterranean Sea, Cala is the dynamic vision of Clive Collective, a hospitality and lifestyle concept that works on a combination of a love for cutting edge design, unique architecture, and memorable experiences. The restaurant, located in Scottsdale, Arizona, has an interior aesthetically designed to complement the modern coastal cocktails and cuisine.With celebrity chef, Beau MacMillan, at the heart of the concept, and interiors by House of Form, this space is set to become both a design and a gastronomic destination for locals and travellers alike.

House of Form, a boutique hospitality design firm, specialises in creating memorable spaces and meaningful experiences through the design process.With this project, a F&B space sheltered within Senna House, the team at House of Form has created a space that will transport guests as soon as they walk in. Using layers of tones and natural textures,the interior both reflects its Arizona location, and immerses guests in the mood of the mediterranean.

The space was designed to reflect the merging of two worlds: the sanded, textured desert and the fresh and airy coast. To complement the chef’s fresh cuisine, the design incorporated lighter wood tones, neutral textures and materials that reflect its location and the coastal environment. The lime wash walls give the space a subtle depth without making the space feel busy or overwhelming. The handcrafted terracotta pots, native to Arizona, are displayed in repetitive and elongated limewashed arches at the entrance,feeling as if you are stepping from a southwestern desert onto a European beach.
