MAGNUSON CAFE + BREWERY
Magnuson Park, Seattle, WA
Located in the old "Torpedo Shop" building within the historic Sand Point Naval Air Station, Maganuson Cafe and Brewery brings a much-needed restaurant to the area along with a full working brewery. Materials used in the design like metal and wood are intended to blend with the original space. Inside the over-sized original historic front doors, visitors are greeted by an angular front counter backed by a reclaimed Douglas fir wall. Here they can casually order food and drinks before then seeking out the perfect spot to sit and enjoy a meal or drinks with friends, family or just enjoy the view of beautiful Lake Washington.
Central to the design is the creation of a strong connection to the neighborhood and its surrounding landscape. The addition of an approximately 2,400 square foot deck to the front will provide a variety of seating for everyone from large gatherings to couples, including the enjoyment of a cold beer crafted right on site. With a family-friendly atmosphere, the café and brewery aim to bring a welcoming space to anyone visiting the park and to grab beer along with a view of Lake Washington.
