The Rook & Pawn, a uniquely designed establishment, simulates one is entering into an old London shop. AMT design team collaborated with the owner to turn a historic abandoned building into a café with an outside deck, a kitchen/food preparation area, a bar, a small sitting area with a game shelf wall, and a back part of the café where the ambiance is a Victorian era alleyway. The project was such a successful transformation of downtown Athens that it was awarded the Athens Heritage 2016 Award for Outstanding Adaptive Reuse; see the “Before” photos and one can understand the accolade for the change. AMT is proud to have participated in creating an exceptional space. For incredible before and after photos, visit our Awards page.
