Cafe Sabor St. George

November 16th, 2017

I’ve always loved the food at Cafe Sabor. I’ve eaten at their Logan location for going on 13 years. So I was thrilled when asked to design their new location in St. George. It’s in the historical district and many buildings in the area have a triangulated pediment above the entry. You’ll see I recreated the same pediment above the entry of Cafe Sabor. The overall idea was to give the space a warehouse feel. It not the stereotypical style for a Mexican restaurant because the food is not stereotypical!

Inside I created two open dining rooms. One dining area is on a upper level with accordion type windows to allow for connection of indoor and outdoor spaces. Since St. George has such beautiful weather the windows will be able to be opened up most of the year. Make sure you stop by next time you are in St. George!

Herm’s Inn Addition

Last night Herm’s Inn celebrated their 5 year anniversary. Can you believe it has been 5 years since I worked with JayDee Barr Construction on this restaurant remodel? If you haven’t been to Logan and eaten at Herm’s Inn…Go!

I am in the process of designing an addition to meet the growing demands of the restaurant. When you combine amazing food with beautiful architecture it’s no wonder every table is always full. We are adding a beautiful patio to not only seat more customers but to allow for expansion of events.

In case you missed the original renovation here are some of the before and after pictures. Herm’s Inn was originally built in the 20’s. It only operated for a few years and was then abandoned. The owner of Herm’s Inn also owns Cache Valley Electric so with the renovation I incorporated an electrical aesthetic while giving credit to the original structure.

The overall feel of the building is harmonious between the use of new materials and the historic features. The flooring that you’ll see throughout the main dining area is actually tile that I had laid to look like wood flooring. I used limestone walls in the lower level (where you will find private dining and reception rooms) to give a nod to the historic stone walls that were used in the foundation of the original building.

Pots and Plants

Landscaping

In landscape design I like to use lots of textures and layers created with plants, pots and yard adornments.  At my studio I have white blooms, red accents and a dense green background.  My studio blooms in white roses, white daisies, a magnolia tree, and hydrangeas.  I love the potted red maples out front.  The yard adornments vary from the decorative white picket fence to lanterns and metal garden art peeking through all the wonderful plants.

Last fall eSpokes opened a new store in Daybreak, Utah.  I designed the interior of the first eSpokeks store in St. George and was glad to know eSpokes was expanding and that I was able to be a part of the process.  Espokes sells and services electronic bikes.  They have a variety of bikes that offer different kinds of electronic assist while pedalling.  These bikes are so much fun!  I actually purchased one for myself.  It’s a sweet looking black cruiser that flies up the hills.

Unique Commercial Spaces

In 2010 I designed this custom office building for Gold Medallion Homes.  While having a unique, fresh, and inviting feel it maintains a professional quality.  This commercial space is a great example of  how a corporate office can maintain high esthetic quality.   Designed specifically for the needs of Gold Medallion’s business at the time as well as for future expansion, it was unfortunate they did not occupy the space longer.  I really enjoyed working with the owners of Gold Medallion Homes.  However, the space is again being used by a home builder, and we are happy to see Wright Homes using the space.
