RESTAURANTS

A sense of comfort and familiarity has always reinforced the success of the guest experience. Quality environments, attention to detail, anticipated needs, friendly discourse, breaking bread—all are requirements enhanced by the interaction of people in a comfortable, seemingly familiar setting. We create environments that encourage guests to feel not just accommodated but that surpasses their expectations. We understand the needs of guests to sense a level of value and richness. A complex mix of needs, routines, and emotions, that link their home and family to these unfamiliar settings, must be acknowledged and anticipated. The environments we design integrate the qualities expected by the guests, allowing them to settle in and feel comfortable. We know much activity is not seen by your guests while you provide seemingly eortless service and unmatched accommodation. We understand and create designs that allow their pulse to slow, spirit to recharge, and spark the desire to return. Our ďŹ rm has a large portfolio of restaurant projects, providing a range of planning and architectural services for multiple franchise clients including Mellow Mushroom, BarTaco, Basic Burger, and many others.


TRENDS

An al fresco dining space can be an experience for diners and a boon for owners through increased traffic and revenue, provided it is well-designed and properly equipped—it’s more than a few tables and chairs outside. Outdoor dining can be built for less than interior space, but is also subject to a variety of additional health, safety, and zoning regulations; it’s a careful balancing act. Functional considerations include service entrances, accessibility, employee flow, proximity to restrooms, and all of the mechanical systems requirements for an outdoor space. Aesthetics can include fire and water elements that would be impractical inside, including fire pits and exotic landscaping. Sun shading including awning, trellises, and umbrellas can help to control temperature and can also serve to create a sense of place. Ultimately, the outdoor experience must be an extension of the interior, supporting the brand experience.

TRENDS

The design of a restaurant should inform the type of bar it contains—a high visibility bar can draw in diners. Aesthetic and functional design depends on the type of restaurant, cuisine, and the desired ambiance. Is it a bustling after work destination, or a quieter extension of the dining room? In addition to the main bar and service area, table seating and lounge areas play an important role in a restaurant, especially when the lounge serves as a waiting area for diners. These areas can help to create mood and draw a crowd that might be captured with bar seating alone. A well-designed lounge area may be popular before a meal, but it can also encourage diners to linger after they eat, either in a quieter low seating space or a higher energy high table and stool arrangement. In addition to ambiance, functional considerations of a restaurant bar include the server’s pathway to the bar if it provides beverage service for the dining room, and proximity to the kitchen if it serves a food menu.

CASE STUDY

PRECARIOUS BEER HALL Located in a historic area and adjacent to a college campus, Precarious Beer Hall endeavored to deliver modern, creative, inspired, and expertly crafted beers in a casual environment. The building’s historical character was blended with modern, urban inuences and subtle undertones of a Bavarian Beer Hall. The 9,250 sf renovation created a brewery and restaurant with a vibrant, vintage interior featuring walk-up street-style tacos, an arcade, and outdoor patio. Also home to a brewery, the beer hall contains a ten-barrel, on-site brewery with a full packaging and distribution operation. The muted colors of brick, concrete, and steel are accentuated with bright pops of green a core Precarious brand color. Textures include harder surfaces with industrial undertones, allowing the historical building to feel light, airy, and new. The taco stand is fashioned from a 20-foot shipping container, customized by street artists from Philadelphia who also painted the mural in the vintage arcade space.

FIRE WORKS PIZZA Wood fired pizza—the primary menu component—and simple rustic materials served as the genesis for the design of Fire Works Pizza. The 120-seat patio contains an eight-foot-long, Corten steel-clad fire pit as its centerpiece. Once inside, patrons are greeted by a magnificent hand blown chandelier reminiscent of fire. A multitude of beer and wine varieties are on display in the windowed wine cooler and keg cooler. Beer lines emanate from the cooler, run overhead in exposed conduit, and travel along the bar area flanked by banquette seating; terminating in inverted beer taps at the back bar. The 40-foot bar, clad in white oak planking and galvanized metal, extends the length of the restaurant from the wood fired pizza all the way to the six-foot-long fireplace. Bar height banquettes overlook the dining room where soaring ceilings highlight industrial chic materials including Corten steel, porcelain wall and floor tile, rustic wide plank oak floors, and urban-style lighting. A delicate balance of earthy and warm colors lend just the right punch.

BARTECA RESTAURANT GROUP

Architecture, Inc. has completed multiple locations of both Barcelona Wine Bar and Bartaco taqueria. Barcelona locations include the Cathedral Heights neighborhood in Washington, DC and Reston Town Center in Northern Virginia. The tapas restaurant takes its inspiration from travels through Spain, and combines a rich palette of rustic materials like roughhewn wood and natural stone. Organic textures are oset with sophisticated artwork and contemporary lighting. For multiple locations of the casual Bartaco, a whitewashed interior and hanging baskets contrast with polished concrete oors and travel-inspired artwork. For both the Mosaic and Reston locations in Northern Virginia and the King of Prussia location outside of Philadelphia, generous outdoor spaces and large bars create a festive atmosphere.
