Elements Architectural Group is deeply committed to client vision, refined architectural philosophy, and striking restaurant architecture. Our commercial architects design, develop, and give life to rhapsodic restaurant designs to nurture interpersonal connections. In every project, we endeavor toward innovation in layout, composition, and aesthetics, endlessly striving for ingenuity in our restaurant-building projects.
When restaurant owners choose Elements, they’re more than a client — they’re a partner. Through active, continual conversation, we unearth and nurture design potential, resulting in enduring architectural feats exceeding every expectation. Each project is a constant, evolving dialogue between your restaurant designer, your restaurant, and you.
Two Brothers Brewing Company opened The Craftsman in 2016 in Naperville, IL. Elements Architectural Group's in-house architecture, interiors, and branding services were exercised to elevate and illuminate the Two Brothers brand and meet the demands of a tight schedule. Two Brothers hired us to not only create a destination where customers can experience the full range of their products — with a market cafe on the first floor, a farm-to-table modern tavern on the second, and a craft cocktail lounge on the third— but also a sustainable design reflecting the Brother’s commitment to eco-friendly practices. This project is pending the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design award, category Gold.
We encourage you to visit the building for its wonderfully crafted menu, though the architecture is a feast of its own. We used a material palette of reclaimed douglas fir, blackened steel, exposed brick, and glass to create a refined rustic, yet inviting setting.
