Char + Bar
West Ashley, Mt. Pleasant and Summerville, SC
The concept of this trio of restaurants is to Repurpose, Recycle, and Reuse as well as to work with local craftsmen and local artists to create a high energy environment. WRD honored that concept and made all design decisions to reflect it. Using raw materials to help achieve this, old pallets were cleaned and used as wall material, plywood table tops were stenciled, and existing wood found in the space was reused throughout. Custom chain curtains were made to display the Triangle logo or local artistry.
"Neat use of 're-purposing' building materials in upfit of restaurant: ... car hood table tops, pallet-board siding, garage doors to give place open-air feel and more." - Trip Advisor
"From stenciled table tops to the chaotically colored murals hung on the corrugated metal walls, both color and design bring the street to life in this garage-like restaurant" - Post & Courier
