“The space was tight, yet the opportunity great. Working in small spaces has become a bit of a niche for us. We enjoyed the collaboration with Scott Kinsey and the fine carpentry from Bijan Shadlou. Creative clients and detailed craftsman make a good blend to achieve a great end result.”
Working in collaboration with a friend and part-owner of this “neighborhood eatery”, Corner House’s design came together taking inspiration from hip new restaurants in New York and L.A. through a Rocky Mountain lens. Rustic beetle kill pine and reclaimed fence wood take a modern twist alternating horizontally throughout this small Jefferson Park corner location. The space subtlety boasts neighborhood history through salvaged brass-based bar stools from the original Gaetano’s and reclaimed garage doors from the building that now houses Root Down. With community as a driving concept, two large, rough-hewn hickory community tables fill the rotunda and bar. Gas pipe shelving and a rustic expanded metal bar with a Colorado soapstone counter complete this chic, reclaimed design.
