MacMillan Makeover: Dated Offices Become Upscale Dining

Our latest restaurant design project is a bit of a phoenix, with a sleek dining room and bar rising from a long-vacant office suite in Alexandria, Virginia. MacMillan Spirit House is the second restaurant venture for Derek Andersen and Emma Hand, who also own The MacMillan Whisky Room in the Mosaic District. At 3,800 SF space, which includes a covered patio area built for all-weather comfort, is more than twice as large as the Mosiac eatery. This larger footprint will accommodate more customers and allow for more food and beverage offerings.
