We’ve been working for a while with the Middleton Group on a great project in what was once the Dwell Smart building at 804 Meeting St.  Bounded by  Meeting on one side and Morrison Drive on the other it is adjacent to the well known  Tattooed Moose Restaurant.  Faced with many  unusual constraints, we were forced to come up with a few innovative solutions to the tight spaces. A drive of permeable concrete pavers snakes through the space connecting Meeting Street to Morrison Drive.  Custom designed Corten steel bollard lighting follows the drive on the North side, protecting the building and guiding traffic.

Goat. Sheep. Cow., the well loved eatery located on Church St., has their new location here  and we designed a great outdoor courtyard for them.  Using a Corten steel and wood fence the space is buffered from the drive.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Due to the tight conditions, plantings are minimal and include native Palms, Scouring Rush in planters and native grasses, perennials and shrub palms along the boundary fence.  Other unique elements include a lower fence next to Tattooed Moose, permeable paving for the drive and parking, custom bike racks and custom steel bollards that double as lights.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Inside the building in one of the second floor offices, we collaborated with Michael Whitfield of Green Roof Outfitters to create a green wall feature on the interior.

 

 

 

The result is another great addition to the neighborhood, adding more life, interest and great food to the already bustling upper peninsula area.

Lewis Barbecue is one of the most anticipated restaurant openings of the summer.  Considered part of the Half-Mile North redevelopment in the upper peninsula, with architecture designed by The Middleton Group, it is a great addition to the neighborhood. The attention to detail and quality construction is evident in the work done by contractor Tom Lennon.

The site details, such as stucco knee-walls and custom bike racks are consistent with those we designed for all of Half-Mile North.  And the plantings also provide continuity with innovative mix of native grasses and perennials, shrub palms and street trees.

The show stopper is the great outdoor space under the existing Live Oak.  A custom designed metal wood locker acts as a back drop on one end, with custom corten steel planters providing pops of color and defining outdoor rooms.  The crushed gravel paving allows water to get to the tree roots and is a soft counterpoint to the hard metal elements.  Custom lighting by NiteLites gives a great ambiance in the evenings.

Additionally, the neighborhood is enhanced by the newly defined street edge with street lights, sidewalks, street trees, and walls at the corner.
