3701 Sevierville Pike Knoxville, TN 37920
SoKno Taco transformed an abandoned property incorporating four buildings into a community-oriented space that has helped propel a developing neighborhood. The design approach borrows from the emerging vernacular of the area — a casual, outdoor-focus — and is adaptable to the community’s future needs.
Parallel parking along the street creates a pedestrian-friendly site, a very important feature for the mountain-biking community that frequents this area. Outdoor seating, a bar, an open kitchen and private room address the needs of young professionals, families and church-goers who make up the community. SoKno Taco was the first in a wave of new developments in South Knoxville that have brought life to the previously blighted area.
