New member to the Chenevert Architects family Kirk Copeland (KCA) was approached with a commission to provide design and permit drawings for a new Tex-Mex Restaurant in Occoquan, Virginia. The site required that two tenant spaces within an existing building be combined into a single tenant space for the restaurant including kitchen, dining, and bar for lunch and dinner services. An outdoor seating area was also provided including a new stamped concrete patio, wrought iron fencing with horizontal intermediate aircraft cable railings, natural gas open fire pit, custom concrete fabricated two and four top tables, all with expansive views of the historically significant Occoquan River. In order to create a unique interior environment within the budget parameters inherent in this project, faux finish artists were brought in to create an “Alamo” type motif of worn stucco on masonry walls, blue sky and clouds ceiling treatment, and weathered wood and leather materials on movable tables and booth seating.
