TACO REHO

The beloved taco truck Taco Reho is finally realizing a dream of opening a brick and mortar store. They will be taking over the old Burger King space on Coastal Highway in Rehoboth Beach, DE.

We are delighted to be working with them to create this one of kind rock & roll inspired restaurant that will include a drive thru for fast casual dining and a garden wall in the front.

This will be our third project with La Vida Hospitality.

We are excited to have a building where we can create the full Taco Reho experience.”

– Owner and Chef Billy Lucas

PRIVATE RESIDENCE

We provided architectural design services for this custom 4,000 square foot waterfront home overlooking the Wicomico River in Salisbury, MD. Keeping the expansive views of the river in mind, our team designed this open floor plan so every room has a stellar view.

In addition, this layout includes a dramatic spiral staircase at the entryway, a walk out balcony, two story stone fireplace, coffered ceilings, a large bonus room located over the attached three car garage and much more. Future plans include a riverfront pool.

THE CAMBRIA HOTEL

The Cambria Hotel project has been ongoing for over four years. We are thrilled to conclude this passion project with the ribbon cutting ceremony that happened on May 25th. We can’t wait to see the Cambria thrive in Ocean City this summer.
Similarly it was really lovely to see everyone in person at the OCDC award ceremony that finally happened on May 5th after a COVID delay

We would like to close out this project by directing you to our blog – where Keith goes in depth on what this project meant to him. In addition to the blog post, a short video was created explaining how the Cambria Hotel came to life.

This has been a dream for us, the sponsors, owners and developers behind this project,” said Janis Canon, senior vice president of Upscale Brands, a subsidiary of Choice Hotels International. “That’s where this all starts.

This historic downtown Salisbury building has been through many transitions throughout its eighty year history. When the downtown area was at its peak, the building represented an iconic thriving center of retail and commerce. Sadly, the height of downtown did not last and retailers were forced out leaving the Powell building empty..
When Fisher was awarded the project, our goal was to maintain the significant historical architectural characteristics. We capitalized on the building’s rich history and focused on bringing new life into the Powell building by altering its use and incorporating apartments above its traditional retail structure.

We love it, to me, it’s one of the most challenging types of architecture … Taking existing, old, historic architecture and adapting it to a demographic that wants to live downtown.”

– Keith Fisher, Principal Fisher Architecture

Under new leadership, Downtown Salisbury has seen an incredible resurgence; with a true desire to contribute and grow the heart of the City. Our clients realize this and have put a significant investment into one of the more prominent and popular streets in Salisbury’s downtown. This project will bring a new living experience to downtown which in turn will bring more people to the area and contribute to the success of local businesses. The updated Powell Building has emerged as a symbol of the renaissance that Salisbury’s downtown is experiencing.

The new brewery will be a significant contributor to the restaurant scene; bringing a unique design to this high-level product. Our goal was to create a space that incorporated all the necessary features to make it successful – a great bar, unique and fun dining areas, and an intimate outdoor rear patio. In addition, we linked the outdoor area to the front bar side so patrons can go for a quick drink or sit and have a casual dining experience.

With any project, there are always obstacles and challenges that we need to overcome. The Ocean View Brewery is located on the second floor of the establishment meaning we had to focus on evaluating the relevant codes and incorporate structural components to support the brewing tanks; knowing that the visibility of the tanks was an important design feature to the owners. To achieve this desired design, we incorporated a glass wall in a raised two story section as part of the interior.

We are so excited to bring a first-class brewpub to Ocean View, we have so many loyal customers in the area, and this has been a long time coming.”

– Scott Kammerer, president of SoDel Concepts

Ocean View Brewery is Fisher Architecture and SoDel Concepts’ third project together.
 
We are excited for this continued partnership with SoDel, especially when the outcome is another great local eatery.

Fisher Architecture is thrilled to be working with SoDel Concepts again! It is a significant moment in our firm’s history to be a part of Matt’s Fish Camp brand.

We are really excited about this opportunity as a company. With this new restaurant we can continue to pay tribute to our founder Matt Haley, the restaurant’s namesake, and serve great food in a beautiful space along Deleware’s Coast. We will be open year-round and will offer indoor and outdoor dining.”

 

– Scott Kammerer, President of SoDel Concepts

Tasked with taking an existing restaurant and developing the space into something more unique and diverse is an honor. It was already a great place for people in Fenwick to go, however SoDel will elevate the location with its unique investment and commitment to the second level outdoor dining experiences. The architecture and interior design will aid in reinforcing that mission.
In the location of the former Ropewalk Fenwick Island, the third Matt’s Fish Camp is set to open Summer 2021.

We are proud to announce we have won a Project Profile Award from @ccrmagazine! We are grateful to be recognized for this work. Read the full magazine in link below.

Fisher Architecture is working with Ropewalk Properties to design and construct a new two-story bayfront establishment.

This replaces the iconic BJ’s on the Water that had to close their doors earlier this year. This new restaurant will include a sandy beachfront area along the water, nearly 9,000 square feet of dining – including over 700 square feet of rooftop terrace with a bar.

This was an iconic, local’s restaurant in Ocean City for decades. Having the opportunity to work on it and design something that respects the past by engaging with the bayfront is an honor. The new restaurant will enhance panoramic bay views and provide a bayfront beach area. 

– Keith Fisher

This new spot will be called Atlantic Beach House and construction is set to begin Fall 2021, with an anticipated completion of Summer 2022.

SBY Airport UAS Hangar

On February 5th the Salisbury Regional Airport (SBY) opened the first Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) hangar on the East Coast.

This one of a kind hangar is open to the public for use as a dedicated launch and recovery site. Sentinel Robotic Solutions (SRS) is the Operator of the brand new 5,000 square foot hangar.

The hangar will be home to testing, training, and development of UAS projects through partnerships with universities, high schools, and commercial companies.

Fisher Architecture was proud to be brought in to do the tenant layout for the Drone Hangar, and is excited to see what will come out of this community hub for discovery and innovation.

Fisher Architecture announced the completion of renovations to Queenstown Bank on Main Street in Chester, Maryland.  This 4,345 square foot, single-story bank with brick exterior and circular lobby, is the start of a rebrand for Queenstown Bank branches. 

The Fisher team, led by project manager, Timothy Bain, provided design services for the renovation of the front half of the building, including the lobby, lounge, consolation, drive-thru room, viewing area, a manager office, ATM room, bathroom, and janitor room.   This included removing most of the interior walls, finishes, and ceiling to replace with a new layout and finishes.

On the exterior, storefront windows were added to provide additional light and a greater sense of openness, as well as pillars and a roof line that is paralleled at the other locations for continuity.

“The client was looking for a firm to spearhead the rebranding for their company and multiple bank locations,” said Sarah Finch, Fisher Architecture interior designer.  “They were looking for the brand to be consistent in recognizable elements across all locations.”    

“I had a good experience working with the Fisher Architecture team,” said Kevin Cashen, president and CEO, Queenstown Bank.  “They did a nice job of refreshing the look and feel of the bank and were mindful to both the traditional customer base and our younger generation of consumers.”
