Challenge: A raw commercial space w/ some previous utilities. The owners needed 1.5 times the square footage for a new restaurant, bar, & bottle shop.
Outcome: A combined space w/ generous light & soaring ceilings. The new space was laid out efficiently w/ an open bar & eating areas. An adjacent bottle shop, and kitchen/storage/bathrooms are on the perimeter. A simple material palette of barn wood & stone pair w/ the clean ‘L’ volumes that dictate seating. Lastly, vintage pendants sparkle in a blacked-out ceiling.
