Silver Beach Pizza Addition
An restaurant expansion becomes one of the best views in town
Silver Beach Pizza, a popular restaurant located between Silver Beach and downtown St. Joseph, needed to expand. The restaurant frequently saw long lines of customers waiting for an open table, especially during the summer. But the restaurant is situated in a small site with some unusual space constraints. The restaurant is also the location of the Amtrak train station, and so railroad tracks run along the restaurant’s western side. A bluff rises up on the restaurant’s eastern side.
These design challenges became the catalyst for a unique addition to Silver Beach Pizza that now provides one of the most unique views in the City.
