The design considered ecological footprint of this new construction and utilized all sustainable solutions: reused elements from the original furniture to construct new tables while providing compressed, recycled paper table tops, sustainable recycled-content floor tiles and polycarbonate custom light panels.

Architectural design is completed by colorful graphics consistently used on menu boards, take-out menus, promotional materials and in the restaurant’s website, all designed as part of our contract.
