A trio of designers redesigns Calgary's restaurant scene.
“Inspiration for each project comes from somewhere totally different,” says Kate Allen, one of three partners—along with Kristen Lien and Kelly Morrison—of Calgary’s Frank Architecture. They designed the industrial-chic Last Best Brewery as a reflection of the brewing process (exposed structural details abound), and Pigeonhole took its cues from a Parisian wine bar and café (think marble countertops and reclaimed wood). When it came time to design a series of medical clinics, the look was sparked from research on patient anxiety, resulting in lush carpeting and even an in-house beverage bar. It’s all proof that the right inspiration can make any space feel like home.
