The design for this ground-up shell in the Heights neighborhood of Houston uniquely features two restaurants unified through an exterior material palette of brick, wood, gable roofs, and steel-framed windows. Simple barns and English country pubs serve as the inspiration for the interior of Hunky Dory along with a nod to its namesake album by David Bowie. The dining area mixes rough and fine finishes such as oak floors and painted wood walls with a ceiling of patterned molding and a brass rod wall screen to create intimacy and definition. A deep crimson brick, textured fabric wall panels, and long leaf pine millwork add warmth to the bar. Bernadine’s is an oyster bar inspired by the gulf coast’s unique seaside. Tumbled-edge white brick with extruded mortar joints, whitewashed siding, expanded mesh, and rusted perforated metal set an industrial tone. A wall of corten steel is paired with white glazed tile and a zinc countertop evoke the weathered metal of shrimp boats in the bar area. Exposed concrete flooring, slatted wood ceilings, and custom cane light fixtures create a dining atmosphere reminiscent of summer beach homes and holidays.
