The impression that a restaurant’s interior design creates often is the critical factor in deciding if a customer’s experience is positive or negative. In general, good dining experiences come from customers feeling “at home” or comfortable in whatever the setting is. The food also has to feel “at home” with the interior.
Remodeling a restaurant in Orange County can be much more challenging than designing a restaurant from the ground up. When you design from scratch the possibilities are limitless. Conversely, when redesigning an existing space, you have to have vision. A remodeled restaurant has less flexibility – bathrooms and kitchens have already been set in place. Moreover, the potential for uncovering problems with the construction are greater when you remodel a space – what will we find when we remove the drop ceiling?
Our architectural and design skills really shine during the creative planning process that goes along with a remodel.
Develop a Concept
Do you want your place to attract a young, hip crowd? Will you target the fine dining set? Families? Students? And what about price points? Do they match your location and your restaurant’s style?
Design for Functionality
The food preparation area and bar must function together seamlessly. Servers and patrons should be able to move about freely – we call this the “path of travel.” Are the bar and kitchen areas designed to minimize congestion? Is your kitchen ergonomic? Is everything where it needs to be for the kitchen crew to work efficiently?
Design for Style
Our licensed architects work to remodel restaurants of all sizes. We can make a small restaurant feel bigger by redesigning the path of travel. Conversely, we can make a large restaurant feel more intimate by using walls, partitions or even banquettes. We can also design any type of restaurant. Is your restaurant fast food, fast casual, casual or fine dining? What about a restaurant where the cuisine drives the design? Is it Japanese, Vietnamese, Indian, Latin American or California? Do you want a “green” design? Do you want to use locally sourced materials?
Materials and Finishes
The materials and finishes you select for your remodeled restaurant influence how your customers experience the space. These materials and finishes can be made from specific compounds that architecturally form the interior; for example reclaimed wood panels, concrete, and brick, to the finish on the walls and floors, to the color on the walls and the lights that help drive the ambiance and attitude.
