New member to the Chenevert Architects family, Kirk Copeland (KCA) was retained by the new owner of a property in Occoquan, Virginia, which was previously a Chinese restaurant, vacant for several years and in disrepair. KCA provided full architectural and engineering services for the renovation of the property, from site plan services including storm water management in the form of on-site vegetated planters, to architectural, mechanical, electrical, and plumbing design and drawings to meet the requirements of the reviewing authority at the time of permit drawing submittal. The existing building was completely remodeled, including roof replacement, and all major building systems upgraded or replaced. The interior of the new restaurant was designed to create the ambience of a French country bistro café, with stone walls adorned with mirrors and local artist’s framed paintings, stained wood faux ceiling beams supporting antique white painted beaded wood plank ceiling, granite bar countertops, and true divided lite stained wood and glass French door partition walls creating separate dining areas within the main service area.
