Restaurant’s Good Design – Hiring an Architect
A successful restaurant starts with good design. There are many components to a good restaurant design and each must be considered carefully. One of the most important steps in creating a successful restaurant design is making sure you have the best design team possible. There are many people and companies that may claim that they can provide you with a satisfactory design, however only by hiring a professional can you insure that you design becomes reality not only in form, but also in function.
Hiring the right architect is one of the most important decisions you can make when building your team. An architect is a professional and can lead your entire team to success. The architect can act as the owners agent and not only provide the restaurant design but also coordinate the work of various consultants that you will need in order to complete your project.
Although restaurant interior design is a very important aspect of any restaurant, there are also a myriad of other things to consider. First you want to consider the mechanical, electrical and plumbing systems that will be needed. These all must be able to support your operations and fit within the context of the building structure, especially if your restaurant is going into an existing space. Next you want to make sure you look at the exterior image of your restaurant design. Is it iconic? Does it have the appropriate signage and landscaping? These are all very important to your design image.
Going a step further you and your architect will need to consider items such as the importance of the entry to your space. What types of doors you use, materials, graphics. These all play an important role in defining the character of your restaurant to patrons right from the first moment they enter. Also when thinking about entry consider the reception area, the space available to those waiting. Do you want to integrate a sales area here so that people can look at items while they wait?
The seating in any restaurant design is very important. Different types of seating arrangements differ depending on what type of operation you have. Seating choices in terms of materials and layout also affect how long people wish to stay and dine. Do you have an operation which favors fast turn over or do you want people to stay for as long as possible? This should all be considered by the design team. With the seating you also need to look at items such as the tabletop itself, the napery and flatware as well as the glassware. How does this coordinate with the overall interior design.
There are so many issues that you and your team need to consider when working on a new venture. Not only is restaurant interior design important but so is the overall infrastructure. Making sure you hire the best architect is a good first step to coordinating these and insuring your success.
