JACKSON, WY – GYDE Architects celebrates the completion of Persephone’s newest Westbank location at The Aspens.
The Westbank location is the third collaboration between GYDE and the beloved Persephone brand, developed and nurtured by Ali and Kevin Cohane. Their vision, in conjunction with GYDE’s commitment to implementing their ‘Design in Everything’ approach, has delivered another immediately cherished community gathering spot. The collaboration dramatically transformed the existing space to make way for a chic French-inspired bakery and restaurant, with a modern and eclectic twist. The new design allows for more seating than its downtown counterpart thanks to the long, luxurious grey velvet banquettes that frame the room. The accents are reminiscent of a French bistro but are enhanced by contemporary wall sconces and a dramatic and engaging gallery wall that was carefully curated by local favorite, Mountain Dandy. The result contributes to a completely unique experience. The restaurant, which will be offering a full-service bar and dinner, is one not to be missed.
In the past two years, GYDE has completed three major projects that have contributed to the community character of the West Bank. Last year GYDE helped open Basecamp, which was a full-service architectural design project featuring branding and graphics by their in-house team. This year, GYDE completed the Persephone Westbank location and a dramatic refresh to the Aspens location of Belle Cose. GYDE looks forward to continuing their collaboration with Belle Cose on continued updates at their Four Seasons and downtown Jackson locations.
The Belle Cose downtown location is not all that is in store when it comes to GYDE’s influence in Jackson proper. Patrons of both the original Persephone and Westbank locations can look forward to further expansion of the brand. GYDE is currently working on the new lunch and dinner spot to be located at the Coe Cabin (formerly known as Sweetwater) this coming year.
