ADAPTIVE REUSE

CLYDES ON MAIN

2014
Chattanooga, TN

Located in Chattanooga’s fast-growing Southside, Clyde’s on Main was envisioned as a neighborhood watering hole. The project is located in a 1920’s building that was previously used by an auto repair and glass replacement shop called Clyde’s.

A renovation of the 6,000 sf building was focused on how to best use the beautiful, load-bearing masonry walls and large garage door openings on the southern elevation. An addition of a covered, screened patio outside those doors enables the entire restaurant to open to the outdoors. While the building design is stripped down to the essential components of the structure, the decor is a vibrant mix of comfortable furniture, custom lighting and wood. All blend together to create a casual and funky joint offering food and drink, live music and ping pong.
