Project Name: Icehouse
Location: SouthEnd Charlotte, NC
Client: John Duncan
Project Type: Retail
Backfilling in the former home of the iconic Southend Brewery was both a design challenge as well as a big opportunity. Teaming again with restaurateur, John Duncan, our team sought to respect the bones of the historic building, give cues to the former restaurant, but likewise create a fresh, more intimate home for the ICEHOUSE concept. Care was taken with the new outdoor patio to create a strong new street presence yet maintain the great natural light inside for a friendly lunch atmosphere. At night the space is transformed with dark colors, wood tones, and blue light elements to support a lively but elegant bar scene.
