We create spaces that people feel good in.
What makes a teD restaurant design unique is the attention to detail we give to each client, our ideology is that we see the
projects as more than a set of plans and material selections, but rather an environment which is finely tailored to that of the
character of its owner.
We are dedicated to working closely alongside clients as part of an immersive and cumulative design process that fosters a cohesive identity: a relationship that simultaneously occupies both the graphic and environmental.
JEM Steakhouse, located in Coachella, an up and coming community just a few miles from the posh
California desert enclaves of Palm Springs and Palm Desert, had a considerable reputation for great steaks, great jazz and great ambiance. But like all well loved and much used venues, it needed an update.
The owners also wanted to get more value out of their bar area which was small and cramped and held little appeal for diners. In addition, they wanted to enhance the private dining room and to find a prominent yet convenient place to house the most expansive wine collection in the Valley – a particular point of pride.
The new redesign by teD and cuisine by renowned chef Julie Shumway dovetail perfectly – Shumway’s innovative renditions of classics offer diners all the perks of fine dining without any of the pretensions. JEM is a vibrant and highly original reworking of an old favorite that desert community diners have fully embraced.

full bar. The lounge is upstairs with a second bar and a 2,000-square-foot patio
that overlooks the W Hotel Hollywood.
In addition to the architectural design, Café Entourage involved the creative
direction of a cohesive Brand Graphics program which was integral to the
design. Spearheaded by lead designer Steven Heath, AIA the program entailed
