The weather activates the architecture. Well, not actually the weather. Its typically the restaurant staff reacting to a brewing storm: “Close the Big Flip. The Little Flip is cool, Drop the Monster!” These well deserved nicknames go to three of the custom steel doors which shape the envelope of South Bound. Crafted in raw structural steel and glass, each of these behemoths are actuated uniquely by balance pivot or winch. This ever-changing envelope is integral to the line blurring experience of interior and exterior fun spaces.
