Catherine’s is a local market near Lake Martin, Alabama. For this project, the traditional barn form was a major influence throughout the design process. This motif helped create a place which would be both comfortable and familiar in its rural setting. The barn-like exterior belies its modern, light filled, airy interior with exposed structure, clerestory windows, and terrazzo floors. The market houses a myriad of unique goods and freshly prepared products, along with a gourmet bakery/deli. A glass encased dining room flows out onto a covered outdoor patio, both with views towards a tree lined park and Lake Martin in the distance.
