The design brief was created upon the legacy of Jupiter waterway pioneers and to be recognized more than a place or a restaurant, but rather embody the heart of a town; Jupiter. The architecture screams old school manufacturing/commercial fishery. We took the base architecture and created a narrative that began with an old Jupiter Fishery where its location was home to the distribution of the best Seafood on the Eastern Seaboard. As the shell has soaring 30-foot ceilings to the clerestory windows that span the entire length and is surrounded by garage doors that once allowed commercial Ice and fish trucks to enter the home of true Jupiter seafood. The language of an old fishery begins with a center core platform that would typically serve double duty, both as an office where the fishmongers could supervises the operations below as well as a catwalk and commercial coolers that house the fish. Though an exposed elevator has now replaced the now defunct conveyer system, the catwalks, cooler and office remain in tact. The “office” is craftily converted to the nuts and bolts of the tap house. Cooler storage was designed as an experiential experience with attention to repurposed details.
