Orange Beach, AL

Year Completed: Under Construction
Size: 40,900 SF

Overlooking the Gulf of Mexico, the project consists of a restaurant, retail store, and an outdoor bar that spill out onto a central greenspace with breath taking views of the Gulf of Mexico. With its broad overhangs, wrap-around covered porch, and iconic tower, the restaurant building design is rooted in coastal Alabama vernacular architecture. Dining areas spill out onto the promenade and greenspace at the ground level. The tower and a second level on the north façade establish a strong street presence along Perdido Beach Boulevard. The retail building draws inspiration from historic southern market structures, including the Charleston City Market. Operable glass garage doors and merchandise counters on the north and south facades allow the space to open up and engage the green space, as well as evoke interest from Perdido Beach Boulevard. An outdoor bar structure delineates the west side of the central green space. The gable roof form, exposed wood trusses, and wood corner brackets are consistent with a traditional southern pavilion. West of the pavilion, palm trees lining the public walkway from the parking lot compose a “post card image” looking towards the beach.
