Chesapeake’s

Knoxville, Tennessee

JAI used the existing building frame of a truck tire warehouse to create an industrial fish warehouse aesthetic. The design incorporated the existing building’s exposed steel frame and concrete container in large part. Existing garage door openings were maintained and replaced with energy-efficient glazing and sunshades to maximize the north facing exposure. New accents of metal panel and glass, along with strategically placed signage and LED lighting, help identify the new use and direct patrons to the front entry.

In addition to an open, inviting interior environment, the building also incorporates two large banquet rooms, a full restaurant kitchen, full catering kitchen, and a smaller glass-enclosed private dining room adjacent to an extensive wine cellar.
