After designing a horse arena and boarding facility for a client here in Bend, we were delighted when they contacted us about building their brand-new brewery in Montana, as well. Project Architect Travis Smith managed the Conflux brewery and restaurant project from start to finish, through all design phases.
Completion date 2018
Size 10,034 square feet
Our client envisioned a contemporary and industrial structure, stylish enough to hold its own in the hip downtown area of Missoula. Utilizing brick, both inside and out, in the dramatically open structure gave focus to an industrial tone.
Flowing out to an outdoor dining courtyard and patio, we were able to take advantage of the urban views – especially of a historic mural on a neighboring building’s brick wall.
Combining concepts of visibility and natural lighting, we installed full-height windows on all four sides of the dining area. The panoramic views to Main Street, Mount Sentinel, and inside the brewery itself, connect the craft to the community.
