Project: Demeter’s, Portsmouth, NH
Industries: Hospitality/Country Club
TMS Architects was involved in the evolution of Regeneration Park since the beginning of its transformation from an old Toyota dealership into a sustainable, multi-use green office, restaurant and retail building. The restaurant, Demeter’s Steakhouse, was a part of this evolution and offers diners a varied menu and a sophisticated dining experience.
Some of Demeter’s more interesting features are their enomatic wine machines imported from Italy. Demeter’s features 40 wines by the glass and using food grade argon gas to filter through the bottles, all their wines are never exposed to oxygen and stay as fresh as when the bottle was first opened. The chef’s table area has a view of the open kitchen and the curved beam over this area was created from an old “found" steel beam on site in the woods and reclaimed to be used for separation and as an interesting visual element.
