Jul's is a 10,000SF water front property on the outskirts of Tyler, TX. The project was a new build finished in early 2014, designed to house a specialized Asian-fusion restaurant and sushi bar. The building envelopes a range of materials presenting three unique dining experiences; the cafe', the formal dining room with sushi bar, and the lounge. The cafe' particularly takes full advantage of the natural light with its glass facade and soft color palette. Here, the juxtaposition of raw materials against modern fixtures and pop-of-color furniture alludes to the calming sensation yet vibrant buzz coffee-seekers may associate with their morning "cup of Joe." Adjacent to the café, the main dining room and sushi bar incorporate many of the same natural elements with the addition of high sheen, luminous materials.
