“Awesome place to eat, very good food”Aaron M
The design goal was to create a modern dining habitat with a bold interior, utilizing raw materials, a custom furniture package, branded signage, butcher-block style wood counters and sales wraps, coated metal surfaces and translucent wall paneling. The design space includes a kitchen, a food preparation room, restrooms and a dining area. The value of coordinating the conversion of a grey shell space into a clean, functional food establishment was a great achievement for the client and the project team.
