The intimate space of Restaurant Communion is a great example of utilizing the architecture you are given. The exposed, rough beams and stacked stones become a wonderful backdrop to a handcrafted and slightly rough interior.
What I love the most about this space is the authenticity it presents. Nothing is completely pulled together and yet there is just enough cohesion to make it work.
Utilizing popular and inexpensive materials such as subway tiles and bead-board allow the space a timeless and collected nature while the Navy chairs and exposed builds add a touch of industrial to balance things out.
