Inside Oakland’s New Balinese-Inspired Art Space
East meets West in a new Oakland architectural space called Monkey Forest Road. This unique locale is part Balinese art gallery, part community coffee shop and part furniture boutique.
Larson Shores Architects designed the space with a focus on bringing the kind of light and texture one would find on the Indonesian island of Bali. With high vaulted ceilings, multiple skylights and the use of textured wood and tile, they created a Southeast Asian landscape in Oakland.
