Monarch Building

Monarch Building - Common Block Brewing Company

Medford, OR

ORW took on the challenge of breathing new life into a disused car dealership and former feed store into a new dining venue on the new park blocks at the center of the Medford Commons, a new office and commercial development in downtown Medford.  

The project involved removing the products of several unfortunate renovations which had muddled the art deco architecture and restoring the remaining portions of the original facade.  In addition, the project involved a significant seismic upgrade of the unreinforced masonry building, allowing for new opportunities to open the building to adjacent park property and create new covered spaces for outdoor dining.
