Barrel House Tavern wins IIDA NC Award

The tenth annual IIDA Northern California Chapter Honor Awards program was held last Wednesday at the Fox Theater in Oakland – the awards program aims to encourage new ideas and techniques in the design and furnishing of interior spaces.

Barrel House Tavern was a recipient of the “PLAY” Honor Award, along with Aidlin Darling Design for Chronicle Books. We could not be more thrilled to be in such great company and take home this prestigious award!

Located on one of the most scenic waterfront lots in Sausalito, Barrel House Tavern occupies 5,000 square feet on Bridgeway Avenue. With 140 seats, the restaurant features an enormous Carrera marble bar, a cozy lounge, wood fired pizza oven, and waterfront seating with breathtaking views of the Bay and San Francisco beyond. The building itself has a rich history: Built in the 1900’s, the space was once the original ferry terminal that shuttled passengers from Sausalito to San Francisco before the opening of the Golden Gate Bridge.

Madrona Residence featured in Luxe Interiors + Design

CCS recently completed this new single family residence in Seattle, Washington, which is featured in the January 2014 issue of Luxe Interiors + Design.

This house was designed as a second home for a Bay Area couple as a summer retreat to spend the warm summer months away from the fog in San Francisco. Built on a steep slope and a narrow lot, this 4000 square foot home is spread over 3 floors, with the master, guest and kids bedroom on the ground floor, and living spaces on the upper floor to take advantage of the views. The main living level includes a large kitchen, dining, and living space, connected to two home offices by way of a bridge that extends across the double height entry. This bridge area acts as a gallery of light, allowing filtered light through the skylights above and down to the entry on the ground level.  All living space takes advantage of grand views of Lake Washington and the city skyline beyond. Two large sliding glass doors open up completely, allowing the living and dining space to extend to the deck outside. On the first floor, in addition to the guest room, a “kids room” welcomes visiting nieces and nephews with bunk beds and their own bathroom. The basement level contains storage, mechanical and a 2 car garage.

Eating and Drinking our way through The Hamptons

For those of you living on the East Coast, you know that August can be a busy time in the Hamptons. CCS decided to brave the crowds and take a little field trip to visit some of our clients. Here are some of the highlights from our culinary tour.

Townline BBQ

First stop was at Townline BBQ in Sagaponack. This has always been one of our favorite spots – the pulled pork sandwich alone is worth the drive. CCS designed this roadside BBQ joint back in 2007, and it’s been a classic ever since. The ultra-casual design, which relates to the classic BBQ joints found in the South, creates a functional, modern “dive” for on-site dining and take-out.

The renovated building is clad in reclaimed lumber siding and has a galvanized metal roof. The casual, friendly interior makes a great roadside pit-stop to fuel up on your way to the beach.

Nick + Toni’s

Next up was dinner at the newly completed renovation at Nick+Toni’s in East Hampton. CCS completed a complete renovation of the interior, just in time for their 25th anniversary.

dining room

In usual Friday night fashion, the place was packed – but owner, Mark Smith, gave us one of the best seats in the house, out on the front patio. A beautiful summer evening with friends, we had an extraordinary meal that we are still talking about. You can easily see how this has become one of the areas most talked about restaurants . (See article in the New York Times)

Saturday was spent at the beach in East Hampton, getting some well deserved R&R before heading out for one last night on the town.

Meeting House

Last but not least was a quick stop in Amagansett to pay a visit to Meeting House. Located right on Amagansett Square, Meeting House is the true definition of “Hamptons style beach casual”.  Absolutely the best way to spend the afternoon catching up with friends, shopping and enjoying some great food & drink. Meeting House was  actually the first Hamptons restaurant CCS Architecture’s New York studio designed back in 2006, and is always a pleasure to come back to visit.

The Amagansett Square is a quaint, cozy, outdoor shopping area nestled in the heart of Amagansett.

Amagansett Square

Sunday night it was back to the hustle and bustle of Manhattan, this time feeling energized. Amazing how only 2 days in a place just 2-3 hours outside the city can make you feel a world away.

Hyatt Atlanta wins Best Restaurant Award

Hyatt Regency Atlanta

CCS Architecture is pleased to announce that The Hyatt Regency Atlanta was awarded Best Restaurant Design at the HA+D Awards Ceremony (Hotel Architecture + Design) in Hong Kong.

This restaurant, lobby bar, and cafe are located in the mid-century (1967) Hyatt Regency in Atlanta, which was the first hotel with a signature atrium, designed by John Portman. In the spirit of the mid-century legacy of the building, the design for all three of these venues is modern, clean and intended to be timeless, while also being unique and warm.

Prominent and near the hotel entry is Sway (southern way), which is a large all-day restaurant, designed with an exhibition kitchen, plus a wine bar.  The original restaurant, which was gutted, was just an extension of the lobby and had no positive identity.  The new architecture that we created now has a façade, which are the wooden sections that establish a border between the atrium lobby and the restaurant itself.  This creates a transition from lobby to dining that is still visually open and inviting.

 

The lobby bar for the hotel is called Twenty Two Storys, which is how many floors the atrium has from floor to ceilingThe design for this is distinctive from the lobby, yet fully open to foster as much flow into it as possible. Although the design is modern, the goal for this venue was to be a ‘modern tavern’.  The wood finishes are darker and the layout is casual to foster individuals and large groups.
