11th mile

Inspiration

Industrial design has become increasingly popular in restaurants, but few find the balance between edgy and cozy. 11th mile, located in the heart of downtown Fredericton, checks off both boxes—as well as chic, laid-back, and “Have you not been there yet?”

Stand Out Features

The upcycled 20-pane window bar with a salvaged raw wood top, allows you to peek into the kitchen. Over the bar, we suspended 2x 6 globe statement lights and used high contrast paint selections with warm medium toned wood, which turned the space into a loft like vibe.

The upholstered banquettes make it hard to choose the best seat.

Key Challenges

Through some creative thinking, we made the most of the floor space, as we salvaged the three different flooring types already present in the space.

We flipped the entire floor plan just days before construction started, relocating the benches between the pillars vs. the bar in our original design.

Indulgences

The heart of the design—both visually and physically—is the almost 20-foot recycled steel and locally crafted concrete bar, which stretches from the entrance all the way into the back room.
