Bar Agricole

This modern tavern is an adaptive reuse of a former industrial warehouse space, and the product of close collaboration with numerous artists and fabricators. A utilitarian palette of steel, concrete, and reclaimed oak emphasizes the space’s rustic yet urban nature. The LEED Platinum design takes inspiration from the sustainable agricultural roots of the restaurant’s artisanal food and cocktail program.
