Washington, DC-based architecture and design firm //3877 unveils Pirouette, a new community destination just outside of the nation’s capital in Arlington, Virginia. The sophisticated-yet-approachable concept comprises a restaurant, wine bar, and wine shop under one roof balanced through an inviting effervescence.
“The space is designed to be inviting and comfortable paired with a sense of poise and refinement,” says //3877 architectural associate Dean Sartain. “The location’s abundance of natural daylight is utilized to open up the dining room as much as possible, facilitating an experience that flows seamlessly between the restaurant and retail components.”
Lined with exposed concrete, wood, and metal, Pirouette’s raw, minimalist interiors are accented by soft lighting and lush greenery. The contemporary aesthetic is grounded in the natural textures of warm wood as well as green, blue, yellow, and red tones that reference wine.
“Our team wanted the interior of Pirouette to translate to the modern French wine bar experience, finding moments for the concept to shine through in the material palette,” adds //3877 interior designer Shannon English. “The space is thoughtfully tailored to the client’s vision of translating a realistic Parisian wine bar to NoVa, trading Americanized ‘French’ design elements for an authentic, immersive experience.”
