Whistling Table

A renovation of an existing retail and restaurant space located in the Forest Park neighborhood of Birmingham

The restaurant is divided into two distinct spaces—the bar area and the open restaurant area. The restaurant area is open, soft and light with natural textural aspects highlighting the locally-sourced foods and sustainable materials.

An existing outdoor patio was enclosed in glass and wood, maintaining views to and from the street and providing a glowing, lively space to the community.

Wood timber from the original structure and other sources was recycled to make booths, exterior paneling, and the bar ceiling.
