Leading Knoxville-based architecture firm announces successful completion and opening of Knoxville’s newest brewery, Voodoo Brewing Co.
KNOXVILLE, Tenn. – December 20, 2022 – Studio Four Design is excited to announce the successful completion and grand opening of Knoxville’s newest brewery, Voodoo Brewing Co., located in West Knoxville.
Voodoo Brewing Co. held its grand opening on December 17, 2022, in a well-attended event that offered an exciting community introduction to the new venue. Located in a former, more traditionally styled restaurant, Studio Four Design was tasked with redesigning the space to reflect the Voodoo Brewing Co. branding and the owners’ vision and unique personalities. Along with the brand’s already established color scheme, the owners were presented with the freedom to implement existing themes along with quirky graphical elements to create a one-of-a-kind space. A creative and colorful mural includes the Knoxville skyline giving a nod to the new East Tennessee location.
With the clients’ desire to reuse existing elements of the original space, Studio Four Design helped find opportunities to repurpose and integrate pieces like the shelving that was reused as signage, the original wainscoting, and the existing concrete floors. Family and friends got involved in the customization of the space by repainting doors that were procured for the new design, which are now incorporated into the décor hanging above the bar and along the wall.
A new, fully furnished commercial kitchen with modern equipment offers an efficient environment in which the staff can work as they serve customers. Because patrons have a view into the kitchen as they pick up their orders, it was critical to the owners that the space be clean, fresh, and visually appealing. An emphasis on function and layout was critical to making the most of the space and easily accommodating customers. Working closely with the owners and franchise, the design team identified a unique solution for the location of the bar, best utilizing the reimagined space to emphasize direction and provide an efficient and seamless traffic flow.
The brewery offers a European beer hall style of operation, with food and drink available, including long community tables and standard dining tables. The style is designed to create a casual, fun, community atmosphere that fosters interaction between patrons in addition to seating areas for smaller groups if desired.
The Studio Four Design team enjoyed the opportunity to work with these motivated entrepreneurs and the opportunity to delve into this creatively driven project. Designer, Vallie Noles, commented, “These were amazing clients and so proactive. They were hands-on the entire time but very trusting of our team.”
