LOWER TOWN PROPER
Design in progress for a new bar and craft beer garden in Ann Arbor. The existing building has two distinct personalities: half raw industrial former garage and half old barbershop with groovy wood paneling. For the main bar area, the design brings in wood accents, soft upholstered booths, skylights, and hanging plants on pulleys to soften add warmth and softness to the concrete box. Connected by two large openings, each side of the space is a remixed mirror image of the other. With wood paneling above, lush furnishings, and a custom privacy screen, the smaller side becomes a cozy lounge space with a subtle vintage vibe.
