Two Keys Public House by LS3P, Summerville – South Carolina

May 10th, 2016 by retail design blog

The design for this upscale billiards hall needed to be inviting, but tough enough to withstand rough-and-tumble pool hall behavior. With a tight budget and accelerated schedule, the design team created a raw but comfortable industrial aesthetic which was impervious to rowdy guests.

This design includes pre-distressed materials which welcomed additional wear. Inexpensive reclaimed barn wood, worn antique salvaged materials, and exposed structural steel and concrete are utilized in their natural state. Vintage doors repurposed as the bar front include door knobs installed for purse hooks. Custom mesh clouds suspended at varying angles throughout the space bring a sense of scale and create a ceiling over the billiards tables.

A local artisan integrated re-used pool balls, racks, and pool cues to create a one-of-a-kind composition which became a custom backdrop for the pool tables. The space also features a large-scale custom painting resembling the owner’s grandfather, a star football player in the 1930’s. The design far exceeded the owner’s expectations; his second day in the new location generated more revenue than any previous day at his former locations.
