Goat Hollow Restaurant
The design scope for this project was to re-invent the interiors of the beloved Mt Airy restaurant, The Goat Hollow. After operating as a bar in this location for over 90 years, it had been boarded since 2003. The clients decided to re-open the restaurant at the same location and keep the original name. The building was in need of significant restoration and there was an exciting opportunity to create a completely new decor, but it felt important to preserve some of the old grit that had made Goat Hollow a memorable part of the neighborhood’s past landscape.
Studio IQL wanted to match the sophistication of the proposed menu and maintain a welcoming, cozy, and familiar environment. The goal with the new Goat Hollow was to blur the boundaries between fresh and aged, formal and friendly, unexpected and familiar.
