Renewable Energy Generation
Located on Maple Avenue off of Armonk's bustling Main Street, 12 Maple Restaurant will boast a seasonal menu created with locally grown ingredients and showcase locally made products created by Hudson Valley vendors and artisans.
The existing building will be fully renovated and updated with highly efficient infrastructure and renewable onsite energy systems. The footprint Is expanded to include a solarium, modular kitchen, additional dining space and a rooftop garden.
12 Maple is intentioned to be rooted in the community as a place to gather, socialize and enjoy all the flavors of the Hudson Valley. Equally prominent will be preserving and showcasing local flora by creating a small but lush meadow at street level and a rooftop garden with seasonal seating. The all season solarium allows guests to enjoy people watching at street level while simultaneously inviting those passing by to come inside.
honing in on texture that allows play on light and form
Beginning with the existing building, the design process begins with an extensive study of existing conditions and identifying optimal sunlight exposure, pedstrian traffic and creating a feature moment at the most prominent street corner where more than 100,000 cars pass by every day. Program flexibility is a key component of the interior layout. The hearth at the center of the main house creates a central lounge compenent, supporting both the main bar and solarium dining room. An intimately scaled single story dining space sits adjacent to the great room, taking advantage of views of the fire place. The mezzanine level is a flexible dining space that can be made into a private room for special occasions. The rooftop garden with outdoor bar is a perfect amenity that can be enjoyed as an extension of public dining or private parties.
Creating a community staple with longevity is at the heart of the process for the 12 Maple restuarant. From integrating sustainable and renewable energy systems, extensive use of local flora and creating, the space is designed to be welcoming for all people for years to come.
Emphasis on craftsmanship, natural materials and longevity are all in the details at 12 Maple. Both durable and tactile, warm but comfortable, cohesive and varied - 12 Maple is designed to be a year round destination for local residents and visitors alike.
