These twin projects are one of the major commercial works that Gehl Design Build has completed. The projects were commissioned by the owner of the property while the actual managers of the restaurant and taproom were the ones involved in the process of design and decision making.
As both designer and builder of these two projects we had an obligation to the owner of the property (who had provided capital for the completion of the projects) to keep the cost within our anticipated budget and meet the timeline for the completion of the projects.
Grazzy Burgers has a restaurant layout for serving burgers, a classic American food. But the idea was to provide a hamburger that was fundamentally different from the definition of hamburgers produced by the fast-food industry.
Grazzy is a revolutionary restaurant that offers a new generation of food, made with care, creativity and health-consciousness. Unlike the typical fast-food industry, Grazzy sees food as a healing ingredient of life, not just a source of calories. Its innovative hamburgers change the basic ingredients of a traditional burger, and also the environment in which they are prepared and enjoyed. Our architectural design reflects the philosophy behind the new burger, by creating a layout, seating arrangement, colors, lights and kitchen-people interaction that enhance the experience of eating at Grazzy.
