The focus of the project was to create a space that is warm, primitive and classic modern as a foundation for a restaurant and lounge. Making natural light available through unique openings to animate the space during different times of the day was a prioriy. There is a strong consideration given to sight lines and use of screens to add as much depth and curiosity between rooms and transitions to the outside. Reclaimed woods, past life objects, and organic building materials attempt to build soul and narrative into the space.
Most finish lumber was reclaimed or a FSC product. Low VOCs were taken into account with paint and cellulose paper insulation was used for the entire space. The hot water H20 system for the building is solar heated.
**Modern Richmond exchanges are free events, but this event has a cash bar.
