General Porpoise

Heliotrope as Architects

General Porpoise is a multi-concept restaurant from ​Sea Creatures​ (Renee Erickson’s James Beard Award winning restaurant group) that turns one large volume into 3 distinct and intimately scaled spaces stretching down the block in Seattle’s bustling Capitol Hill neighborhood. ​Bar Melusine​ celebrates the French Atlantic with oysters, crepes, pré salé lamb, and more, in a sea of tonal greens. ​Bateau​ re-imagines the recently retired Sea Creatures restaurant, Boat Street Café, as a modern steak house with a view into an in-house dry-aging room. ​General Porpoise​, a doughnut shop and multi-roaster serving filled, yeasted doughnuts is a sun-lit, bright, white space accented with shocks of radish pink. All three dining rooms hug the street and position diners close to a tall, expansive, glass storefront. Detailing is traditional, pared-down to a crisp, contemporary line. Herringbone flooring in wood and tile, rustic whitewashed wood siding, brass fixtures, and custom lights give consonance to the whole.​
