Inspired by nearby family farms, this renovation at Pleasant View Communities converted their café into a restaurant, private dining room, coffee bar, bistro, and outdoor patio. The 9,700 square feet of reinvented space is meant to invite the outside community into Pleasant View so that friends and family can connect in a welcoming, relaxed environment to enjoy fresh, local, farm-to-table foods. At the center of both the bistro and the full-service restaurant is a hearth oven, a signature feature highlighted in the name Hearth & Harrow. The bistro was formerly a lobby space but is now an innovative made-to-order food service area including a display kitchen. The restaurant boasts a green wall to emphasize the importance of outdoor connections, which carry out onto the patio that features festoon lighting, firepits, and a refurbished fountain with artwork completed by a local sculptor. Reese Hackman provided complete mechanical, electrical, and plumbing engineering, as well as lighting, low voltage, and telecommunications design for Hearth & Harrow, which totaled $2.5 in construction costs.
