This project was a true collaboration on so many levels to execute the owners’ vision. Assembly Design Studio, Luciano Group and Cafco Construction worked extremely closely with the owners of Loco Taqueria & Oyster Bar to deliver the restaurant they wanted down to every last detail. Assembly assisted with this process on several levels ranging from sourcing the reclaimed wood for the custom furniture, procuring light fixtures all the way to the development of the overall logo, menu & website design.
One of the most interesting aspects to our team, was the transformation of an existing restaurant space, into an entirely new venue. This involved removing not one, but two existing ceilings, rebuilding walls, and a lot of attention to detail. Here are a few shots of “before” and “after”
Some interesting design details –
Bar top, table tops & shelves were repurposed made from beams recovered from the ceiling during demo and then fabricated by Grinnell Cabinet Makers
Bar face was created from antique ceiling tiles recovered from a NH General Store
Barstools & chairs – made from reclaimed wood from barns in the midwest that had been damaged from tornadoes
Back wall (green, grey and red) – painted floor boards recovered from NH, light nod to the Mexican flag
Booths & Banquettes – custom made from Blue Barn out of old white washed painted reclaimed wood
Communal table & benches – custom made from Blue Barn – he is truly talented!!
Mirrors – Frames with a History – salvaged windows repurposed into mirrors
