Bask is the latest addition to the mixed-use development, The NC Music Factory, in downtown Charlotte. This restaurant and lounge celebrates both the traditional and contemporary in every aspect of Bask, from the menu, music and cocktail list to the design and construction. With a tight budget, Choate’s challenge is to highlight the existing brick walls, hardwood floors and ceilings in this historic mill while also injecting a contemporary, upscale flair. Working in close conjunction with Mistri Hardaway Architects and the ownership group, Choate’s team achieves a look that elevates the industrial skeleton while never losing sight of the mill’s inherent charm. The result is a “modern vintage” space that honors its roots and embraces the future.
