WPA is excited to be working on another new restaurant on Granby Street. Bonchon will be moving into 273 Granby Street and opening up the façade to the street with a new NanaWall system.
WPA is thrilled to partner with For the People Projects on Oozlefinch Craft Brewery in Hampton, VA. The project is located at Fort Monroe and is BCOM project. Jen Stringer (longtime friend and collaborator) is the Lead Designer and Owner of For the People Projects. WPA is the Architect of Record, assisting Jen with her work as Lead Designer and Owner’s Representative. Oozlefinch Craft Brewery honors the legend of the “Oozlefinch,” a featherless bird that flies backward at supersonic speeds. Under the influence of alcohol, Captain H.M. Merriam first sighted the Oozlefinch outside the officer’s club at Fort Monroe. Over time, reports of Oozlefinch sightings became more common, sketches were made, and a statue of the Oozlefinch was erected on Fort Monroe.
WPA and our design partners are honored to receive the Merit Award for Interiors for the Norfolk Tug Warehouse Renovation project. The renovation was a project in which we could highlight adaptive reuse, the challenges of integrating modern design elements harmoniously with old, and incorporating custom design elements. This award and the recognition by our peers is truly an honor and a capstone to our 5th year as a firm. Thank you all.

We are happy to report that the proposed façade for a great new restaurant that we’re designing for 319 Granby Street has been issued its Certificate of Appropriateness by Norfolk’s Architectural Review Board. 319 Bacon will feature delicious bacon dishes and craft beers that we can’t wait to enjoy while sitting in the covered outdoor patio just off the sidewalk. It has been a delight working with a team of clients who have a distinct vision for the best kind of customer experience, and we know this will be a highlight to the Downtown Norfolk and regional dining scene.
We’ve enjoyed this collaboration for the completion of Grand Central Eatery with MK Catering, CJW Contractors, and staff at The Community College of Baltimore County’s Owings Mills campus, and now looking forward to grabbing a cup of coffee and delicious treat.
