“I needed a home run and Sake Reindersma Architecture, PLLC delivered. I can’t say enough about Sake’s creativity, knowledge of codes and persuasive nature with city planning departments. Here is my story.
I owned a valuable piece of street frontage in the northwest Phoenix valley. I wanted to put an unusual restaurant on the parcel that would not be like anything around. My curiosity, along with many others, had been stimulated with the idea of re-using shipping containers for the outdoor dining, drive thru, gourmet Mexican restaurant. I had (2) renowned chefs excited and working on the recipes, the right location, a vision in my minds eye but I needed somebody to put it together so that the city would buy it. Everybody said; “the building department would not go for it...too different.” I wanted to give it a good try...and I wanted a “good Scottsdale architect” to work with. I asked for a qualified resource and Sake’s name was given to me.
When Sake and I sat down to brainstorm combining the stacked shipping container look with stucco and a handsome roof line the ideas started flying. I have never had such a good time exploring different ideas. Sake was a fast thinker and I was having fun keeping up with him. The contractor kept asking if the city will go for it. Sake’s response was; “we have to give it a try. We have to make it look good.” And, he did just that! To this day I am blown away with the uniqueness and symmetry of our Mexican restaurant.
I could go on and on, but suffice it to say; I am very happy with what Sake created. Take a look at it for yourself. It is attractive, stands out in a Mall, trendy and is full of life. I can’t wait to build 50 of them.”
