A street view by Google offers a lively account of what the corner of High and Pleasant Street already look like in downtown Morgantown, WV. With Tin 202 keeping the corner alive into the night, the hip residents that frequent the Real Juice Bar, Black Bear or the Co-Op by day now have another venue to look forward to. The surrounding area has continued in the last few years to be revitalized and the owners of the popular night spot, Tin 202, have decided to keep on renovating their own block. The owners, alongside of head chef Josh, hope to open a lunch/cafe and wine tasting bar that will offer craft cheeses, meats, and more.
The Mills Group has been asked to help with this renovation, and we’ve started by describing the desired scene in sketch.
Once inside, the two new storefronts will be opened up to one another. The left side will have a craft-food retail area and extend into the new dining room space next door. In the market, a large kitchen will be open throughout the length of the space so that customers shopping for special meats and cheese, may see exactly how their food is being prepared.
Sketches turn into floor plans and details. Then, we begin to assign materials that can be shared with the client to assure them that the space appears and functions the way they need it to. The initial sketches become construction documents with which contractors may begin to be involved in the collaboration. We’ll keep you posted so that you can plan to sit, sip and sketch in the newest space in Morgantown too!
