A Restaurant for Chef Ethan Stowell in Ballard. Housed within the century-old Kolstrand Building in the old industrial area of Ballard, Staple & Fancy is the fifth restaurant by celebrated chef Ethan Stowell. We felt fortunate to be working in a space already filled with so much character, and our design strategy was the respect the history and character of the place. The existing painted brick walls and rough timber framing were left exposed, with the brick wall becoming a main focal point of the restaurant.
