Featured Restaurant Projects

Multi-Tenant Building at Gainesville Plaza

Monarch has partnered with Crawford Realty on this new dual-tenant outparcel building located at the Gainesville Plaza Mall. This 3,500-square-foot project requires careful designing around a utility easement that bisects the site. Monarch’s design incorporated the specifications of the local land development code, which requires that the building remain a certain distance from the road, have a front entry, and incorporate a certain façade, while still remaining true to the client’s vision. To accommodate this restaurant’s business goals, the design includes a drive thru that allows for turnaround and more than eight vehicles at once. The project includes steel walls, an Exterior Insulation Finish System, steel joists, and a metal roof with tapered insulation. Finally, for energy efficiency, the rooftop solar panels power the lights in the exterior railings and parking area. Over the course of the initial discovery meetings, live design meetings and next step meetings, Monarch demonstrated the building design with clarity, engaged the contractor, and stayed on budget early on. The Firehouse Project features the perfect example of realistic quantity takeoffs in real time to make fast-acting decisions every step of the way.

The Swamp Restaurant

For this iconic project, Monarch will preserve The Swamp Restaurant’s memorable ambiance and enhance the charming characteristics of the old building that guests remember the most. The interior color palette will be kept neutral to allow memorabilia and custom LED neon signs to enhance the restaurant’s character. Monarch will both bring back the old building’s custom mural as well as add new art pieces to special areas for photo opportunities. The atrium will showcase a tongue and groove wood ceiling detail on the second floor to warm up the space. Design and ambiance carry through to the restaurant’s restrooms by providing accessibility, durable materials and a contemporary fun design. It was important to both the client and Monarch’s design team to provide accessibility elements by adding an elevator for ease of access to the second floor, and reconfiguring the main bar to provide a wheelchair area to ensure all guests can be part of the main bar’s activities.
