Coffee and Wine Bar
Team: Chelsea Davis, Xiaoqian Dong, Rachel Majors, Guangun Wang
Goals: For this project, the students were to develop a conceptual design for a new coffee and wine bar that was to be built inside a historic building in a small central business district. The restaurant would serve an upscale yet informal clientele.
Results: The students developed a design that combined contemporary industrial materials with the highly textured existing surfaces of the historic building. They submitted a floor plan along with finish and furniture selections, and provided several computer-generated perspective renderings that represent the overall design concept.
