“Dave created a unique design to bring a warm, inviting presence to an stale box. We were challenged with the large expanse of the room and how to break it up into the bar, lounge, and dining areas. The resourceful use of the large timbers presented a surprising appeal from the patrons. Dave managed the construction process remotely, and worked long days on site over short stays to pull it all together with limited resources. We were very happy with the results.”

Barrio 75 came about through a previous project with a local restaurateur and food magazine publisher. The client was sought out by a boutique hotel in Sun Valley, an iconic ski resort in Idaho. The concept is a take on street tacos and signature cocktails, with a mix of Latin culture and mountain modern design influence. Rustic, reclaimed beams shipped from Denver to Jackson Wyoming, prefabricated, then sent to Ketchum, create a departure point in the large volume of the room. Accented with distressed ceiling tile walls, cut crystal lighting, and mid modern furniture. We discovered a Mexican illustrator to provided the main wall mural with a sugar skull stylistic image.
