Oast House Brewers was an adaptive reuse project located in NOTL at the old Red Barn site. The tasting bar located on the main level incorporates reclaimed materials and found vintage items for a rustic farmhouse aesthetic with just the right amount of kitsch. It was important to the client that the Hayloft event space located on the upper level had its own identity. The use of Oast House red canopies mimics the barn roof and provides intimate conversation areas in the otherwise open space. Layers of warm light play off of the textures of reclaimed wood, brick, and leather while highlighting the sleek booth seating. The contrast of textures and light creates interest for an inviting space to be enjoyed for a variety of functions.
