Bar and Restaurant
Every piece of worn, ragged, and used material was an inspiration in the design process.
Importance of Whiskey in Texas culture, inspired us for having a focal point in the project. This center piece created different zones in the restaurant from crowded bar to quiet fine dinning.
UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
Bosscat Kitchen creates a ranch scenery by choosing and assembling unique materials, lights, and furniture. Reclaimed and rustic materials are used in every corner of Bosscat to escalate the farmhouse effects; In addition, old- fashioned light fixtures illuminate the space in a dramatic way. No furniture in Bosscat is typical, they are all designed to match with the environment. What makes Bosscat apart and distinctive from the other local restaurants is the theatrical effects it generates.

The overall ideas and concepts were generated based on the sustainability and cost saving. The process started by studying how different used materials can have unique functions to serve the restaurant design and be re-constructable for food establishment activities in this project.
Bosscat strove to be a Green building which uses mostly reclaimed materials, meanwhile. The challenge was that the limited number of sustainable materials tended to dictate a special type of design, rather than design dominating the material selection. Careful use of material, lighting, and furniture was necessary to preserve the focal character of the restaurant.
Also size of the space gave us the challenge of creating different zones and private areas for different type of dinning and activities.
