Mission District's Farina Restaurant has open air seating and large windows at its entrance. At night the glow of the restaurant beckons on a dark stretch of 18th Street between happening Valencia Street and Guerrero. There is an outdoor terrace on the second floor and the handrails in the photo above lead you to the second floor dining room and terrace. Constructed as a simple one-piece integrated metal handrail and bracket, it is the most similar to the one I saw in the Villa d' Este at the Tivoli Gardens that I published about a month ago. See that handrail here.
I started this series because I'm planning to replace my clunky handrail at home. My current thought is to have a wood handrail with a bracket similar to this. I like the warm feel of wood compared to metal. Work in starting in a week so I need to finish the design.
