About This Project

Modern meets rustic style at Virtue Feed & Grain, located in Old Town Alexandria, Virginia. The restaurant owners enlisted the help of DAC and a group of architects and artists in their efforts to pay respect to its storied past.The venue keeps the memory of the location’s past lives as a brewery, a bookstore, and as the name suggests, a feed house, which DAC resolved by using repurposed materials and elements like bar stools welded from tractor seats. With soaring open windows, exposed brick and giant iron girders, DAC met the challenge of this expansive space with memorable winged art pieces and clusters of lounging sofas reupholstered in vintage looking burlap that is at once industrial chic, and cozy at the same time.
