Hospitality - Restaurant - Beaucoup Burrito - Beaucoup Burrito - 17th & Stout, Denver, CO

Designed while working at (shike) design

The challenge presented at this sustainable-minded fast food establishment was the long, narrow space which did offer the benefit of high ceilings. Tension fabric panels partitioned the space and dropped the ceiling while maintaining a sense of height. All furnishings, lighting and wall decor were designed using green materials sourced and fabricated locally.
