Oak Park, IL, Spring 2016, Brewery + Tap Room
Through close collaboration with Steve (the head brewmaster) and exacting design, we were able to create a brewery capable of producing 6,000 barrels per year within a small space.
We successfully navigated new Village of Oak Park ordinances to create Oak Park's very first taproom. Their goal for the space was fellowship. Through attention to detail, lighting, and materiality we created a welcoming, habitable, cozy environment — the perfect balance of our specialties in boutique commercial and residential design.
With a focus on social and sustainable benefit, we're sure Kinslahger Brewing Company will be a positive addition to our community.
