For Three Tavern’s second location, conceived as equal parts brewery and laboratory, the brand new Imaginarium explores the curious nature of craft brewing. Located in the historic Atlanta Dairies adaptive reuse development a mile from downtown, the volume of the selected space was perfect for the requisite large stainless steel brewing tanks.
Square Feet Studio‘s biggest challenge was working with the small but very tall footprint and accommodating their client’s desire to have more seating than their first brewery. So they designed a mezzanine that allows the beer-making process to be viewed from different vantage points, each offering its own particular experience. Structure for the upper level was carefully coordinated in and around the brewery’s production area to maximize functionality and safety. Each seating area allows for different vignettes and moods, all with little moments of discovery. To complement Three Tavern’s well-loved interpretation of traditional Belgian-style beers, designers embraced a feeling of mystery and curiosity surrounding their intriguing new flavor profiles debuting at this location (Published with Bowerbird).
