Michael Hsu Office of Architecture

Restaurants / P. Terry's North Lamar

This project consists of the remodel and addition to an existing 1950’s building for a drive-thru and dine-in, local hamburger stand. References to mid-century culture and the site’s previous architecture inspired the design. The scale of the building places an emphasis on the automobile while also nurturing the neighborhood-oriented dining experience. Key architectural features include large expanses of floor-to-ceiling glass and a sculpted roof structure that extend the interior out towards the street. Other elements include an open display kitchen, natural and tactile materials, such as custom milled wood siding and ledge stone.
