DRAFT & VESSEL
STATUS: DESIGN ONGOING – Expected construction late 2018
CONCEPT: The design of this new building is marked by the hyper-articulation of the primary structural elements. Exposed beams and various framing components lend a rustic modern feel to the spare and suggestively industrial space for this tap room carrying extensive and difficult to find beers.
Site planning decisions dictated a pair of buildings, the Tap Room and the Bottle Shop, bifurcated by a flush wood boardwalk traversing the length of the site. A Hops Court with pervious pavers greets the arriving customers, while a Beer Grotto with rain feature, river rock and lush planting remains a hidden gem at the rear of the site for hot afternoons or private affairs.
