Sketchbook Skokie Taproom

Taproom Interior and Bar

2021 — Built

Architectural Design, Interior Architecture

This design for a new taproom for Sketchbook Brewing Co. features an intimate curving bar set within the more cavernous industrial interior of a new brewing and canning facility. A gridded canopy of plywood and orange sound-absorptive felt panels floats colorfully above the bar and renders acoustic space for friendly conversation among patrons and bartenders. Vinyl lettering on inter-changeable acrylic tiles broadcast the rotating roster of craft beers. Customers can view the fermenters through glass windows visible from the bar.
