Avroko Restaurant Design

Avroko Restaurant Design

The concept company AvroKO has been designing the hottest restaurants for almost 15 years. The trendy and memorable interior offers a fresh take on hospitality and commercial design, causing a sensation from the masses and applause from the critics. So it’s no wonder their two latest projects, Ninebark in Napa Valley and Swift & Sons in Chicago, don’t disappoint.

These two new restaurants represent AvroKO’s spectrum of talent in terms of restaurant design. A three-story, centuries-old building based on a warehouse was designed for the locally inspired Ninebark Restaurant in Napa, California. On each of the airy floors, herbs, products, twigs and flowers are rotated, artfully arranged on tables and hung on the walls like framed works of art. Each level is designed to offer a different experience, while a garden-driven aesthetic gives the historic building a modern charm.

In Chicago, Swift & Sons was introduced as the headquarters of cattle magnate Gustavus Franklin Swift. Streamlined office-style furniture gives the room a classic steakhouse feel, but with a certain touch. Brass accents, plush booths, and Jean Prouvé chairs create a retro-futuristic aesthetic, while framed photos of cows and a large mural depicting a farm hint at the restaurant’s roots in the Midwest. The spacious, opulent room is located in a former meat packaging plant. The concrete beams and vaulted ceilings are remnants of the space’s history.

Take a look at each of the restaurant designs below and get inspired to tackle your own dining room design, or make a reservation! Images courtesy of AvroKO.

The brick building that houses Ninebark is known for being the site of a notorious murder in 1974 that left the restaurant there closed for 37 years.

The ground floor offers a casual bar and dining experience. Rough floors and sheet metal ceilings refer to the historical charm of the building, which is contrasted by modern bar stools in the shape of a wishbone.

The second floor is an elegant dining room with an open kitchen and a cooking table with food and products on display in the background. White subway tiles and light wooden tables provide a light contrast to the dark wooden floor and ceiling.

On the second floor there are “glowing walls” made of flowers and herbs, which form an organic contrast to the leather armchairs from the middle of the century.

The Swift & Sons design was inspired by Gustav Franklin Franklin Swift, one of the pioneers of the livestock industry in the 19th century. The restaurant is intended as the office and headquarters of the titan.

The cavernous space has industrial accents that hark back to its past life as a meat packing factory. Concrete pillars and brasserie tiles are juxtaposed with elegant leather bar stools and minimalist pendant lamps.
