Cotton & Rye Restaurant Renovation, Savannah, Georgia
2017 Merit Award - Lynch Associates Architects
The Cotton & Rye Restaurant transformed the space of a mid-century bank building that had recently housed two previous restaurants, but had never undergone the full renovation that the building required. The new owners sought to create a holistic dining experience for their first signature restaurant, putting as much consideration into the design of the building as they did into the design of the menu that achieved them the status of one of the premier restaurants in town. With its welcoming atmosphere and contemporary design the building also has become a contributing structure to the rehabilitation of a transitional corridor in town.
