the existing strip mall had seen better days, as had the interior space, but the location was in the neighborhood where the client grew up.
m+a was to create a welcoming space where you could come for breakfast, lunch and dinner; and to update code deficiencies relating to accessibility and the health department.
working closely with the contractor, we identified areas of code concern and redesigned these ares for compliance while minimizing the square footage impact. the kitchen was expanded and opened up to the seated patrons. the interior feel is french country meets the dusty west.
