Timber pizza was a full scope construction project. Starting with the demolition of the space.
The project included full underground plumbing, new concrete floor slab, new storefront system, all MEPs, all drywall, framing, painting, copper bar tops, and most importantly the millwork package.
The owner was looking for the look and feel of a New England-based summer camp, similar to a summer camp you would see in the mountains of Vermont. Fortunately, the existing conditions of the space allowed us to achieve this objective. After our initial investigation, we found that the existing roof support structure was old exposed wood framing. The perimeter brick walls of the space also played a huge role in the aesthetics, as we left them exposed and sealed them to preserve their integrity.
The rest of the wood and millwork was sourced by Hospitality Construction Services in partnership with Andrew Dana one of the owners of Timber Pizza Company. We went on numerous trips to antique and vintage shops to source everything found in the space today.
We took old workbenches and furniture and turned it into sales counters and expo stations. From the millwork down to the mop bucket, it is authentic!
The barn style wood and board lumber were picked from piles in the back of shops where it had been left to rot. We salvaged solid, old, worn lumber and brought it back to life.
One of the focal Points of the space is the wood fired pizza oven by Maine Wood Heat company. It boasts a beautiful copper top that glows in the space. In order to carry that feel throughout, we hand built a bar top out of copper that sits adjacent to the wood fired oven.
One minor challenge to the project was the overall size of the space. In a 1000 square foot space, it takes some creativity to incorporate all the needed components to make a restaurant operate successfully, as well as create a unique dining experience for the customer.
