As part of the Huxley Wallace Collective’s rapidly growing family of restaurants, the idea behind Bar Noroeste was an elegant and intimate taqueria serving Pacific Northwest inspired tacos and libations. Located on the ground floor of Amazon’s new South Lake Union Headquarters, the scope of the project involved developing both Bar Noroeste and Great State Burgers, two separate restaurant concepts that share the kitchen and prep space. The choice of materials conveys warmth, with features such as copper fixtures and charred wood wall treatment inside the space, to offset the coolness of the existing building shell. Our team also developed the exterior screen wall to create a separation from the bustling street and the intimacy of the bar.
