AINSLIE RESTAURANT- williamsburg
This adaptive reuse project originally was 5,000 square foot former wire loom factory and was converted to a restaurant. It's floor area was increased to 8,000 square feet of interior space with an additional 2,000 square feet of roof-top dining. The brick building was restored and modernized to accommodate a restaurant with multiple dining and drinking experiences. The existing first floor was lowered by ten feet to allow direct street access. A new cellar was created for storage and 'back of house' needs. A mezzanine was built to accommodate private parties. A 36' long by 12' high bifold glass hanger door was installed on the new rear wall allowing for a seamless indoor/ outdoor transition between the rear eating area and walled in garden area. The roof consists of 120 fully restored/ operable skylights in the sawtooth truss structure.
