While working under the Secretary of Interiors Standards for Historic Rehabilitation, our design team was challenged to create an inviting restaurant space that maintained the previous “neighborhood” feeling in a gastropub type environment. The client requested that we preserve the historic building structure originally built in 1931 while creating a new and inviting place for locals and visitors to dine and socialize.
We used a combination of historically-consistent materials and styles to rehabilitate, revitalize, and meet the historic requirements of the building. Materials and finishes were not only historically relevant, but also conducive to creating a relaxing “neighborhood” restaurant environment. The end result is a well-preserved, old building, with a new restaurant concept that melds seamlessly into its long-time neighborhood home.
Since its construction in 1931, this building has played a significant role in the cultural district where it is located.
The area was largely rural when the building was built and since has been a thriving part of a neighborhood community. The finished product was a crisp, restored historic building with connections not only to the past but also the present.
