Chippy's Ballard, Seattle, WA Hospitality
Located next to Staple & Fancy, another one of his restaurants, Chippy's is Ethan Stowell's take on fast food. Comfort food like fish and chips are upgraded by using the highest quality ingredients. We emulated this idea by designing a space that was fun and easy without compromising class or sophistication. The original weathered brick is exposed to celebrate the rich history of the Kolstrand Building. The striking neon fish sign that overlooks the restaurant is eye-catching in an otherwise simply decorated space. The ash table tops and stained wood banquette enhance the space to make it lighter and brighter.
The open front connects the restaurant to the rest of Ballard and establishes Chippy's as a neighborhood hot spot for a meal that is delicious without being too fussy.Guests can take advantage of the additional seating on warm, sunny days. We had to experiment with creative solutions to maximize seating in the space without making it feel crowded or overwhelming. At 600 sq feet, the restaurant is small and intimate without feeling too cramped. Formerly the Dutch Bike Company, we completely transformed the space from a bike shop to a warm and welcoming restaurant.
