having exposed the columns, we added
bar-height drink counters with leather
barstools and glass pendants, with a
porthole window above.
The feature of the bar was the next
task, to give the space character. Teakcolored, louvered panels installed in
front of a reed-filled, lit, ocean-blue glass
panel on the wall gave the drama the
bar needed. Above the live edge feature
table we suspended three light fixtures
reminiscent of fishing traps.

Jury comments:
* Appropriate space in between
tables in dining room for residents
to independently self-navigate with
wheelchairs and walkers and space
for semi-private dining.
* Excellent use of color, balance,
attention to detail, localization, and
nautical inspiration without being
too themed.
* It feels like a real pub space- not
a "faux" pub. Nice décor, great
tables that are interesting, love the
glass. Nice diversity of spaces with
different character to spend time
in-this would be an enjoyable
place to have a glass of wine.
* Clever achievement in indirect
lighting with newer dropped
fixtures.
* This project illustrates the design
team's skill of creating a beautiful
functional space from nothing.
Great job!
