Warm finishes, specialty lighting, and a fireplace add a luxurious, welcoming touch to the mezzanine level dining environment inside this urban grocery store format.
The toasty hearth is one of many elements that provide an elevated, sizzling excitement to the design’s high-quality approach of portraying each unique food category as a specialist business within an overall coordinated set of shops. The contemporary urban shell’s layout of multiple entries and large columns further enhances the separate shops.
Wall-wash lighting, along with strategically placed wayfinding and graphic elements, aids in creating an open visual connection from the sales floor to the mezzanine.
Breaking up flanking spaces with a varied approach to the design addresses the long corridor created by the positioning of the main food service island. Each space has its own unique architecture, finishes, and wayfinding.
Carefully designed graphics throughout the store deliver a unique, modern feel.
