Innovative Restaurant Design Merges Tradition with Modernization; Introducing a First-of-its-Kind Winery to the Area
Norfolk, VA, October 23, 2023 — SCGWest has successfully completed construction for Waters Edge Winery’s newest location in Norfolk, Virginia. Seamlessly integrating the building’s supermarket past with contemporary design, this project underscores SCGWest’s premier position in restaurant design.
Kirk Bennett, the project’s senior architect and QA/QC manager, provided insight into the challenges and triumphs of the undertaking. “The existing building’s modifications over the past 40 years presented both a challenge and an opportunity,” he explained. “Its previous history as a supermarket instilled a sense of familiarity with the locals. Respecting this sentiment, we wanted to preserve the façade and celebrate its legacy.”
The interior of the bistro has been crafted with intent and precision. The wine fermentation and tank room, visible through clear glass walls from the dining area, offers guests a peek into the winemaking process. This transparency provides not only an educational experience but also an appreciation for the craft that goes into every bottle. Furthermore, an expansive skylight showers the restaurant with natural light, complementing the ambiance and creating an enchanting atmosphere.
Overall, each element of the winery is tailored to ensure visitors fully immerse themselves in the world of wine. The owners share, “Our dream is for every guest to feel at home… Spreading joy and fellowship through wine!”
