Project DescriptionThrough the creative process of creating a home for Fish & Game, principal architect Michael Davis found that the notion of “preparing a meal and cooking a restaurant” persisted as a theme. As a chef crafts a dish using a little of this and a little of that, Davis allows the architecture and design project to take on a personality of its own in a wholly organic way, finding that the next steps unfold naturally and unexpectedly. Davis’ goal is to create an environment that will look and feel like the food will taste.
The 19th century brick structure originally housed a blacksmith shop, but had since been haphazardly attended to over the years, losing its original historic luster and architectural detail. Through the expert guidance of the award-winning architect Michael Davis and his re-adaptive re-use of period sensitive techniques and materials, the structure is more historically sound than the state in which it was found. The fully gutted, structurally-reinforced, restored building will be a livable, almost residential feeling restaurant that evokes country elegance through its impeccably appointed details all handcrafted and/or reclaimed and repurposed. -- courtesy e-architect
