Interior Remodel

Industry: Restaurant and Bar  


This remodel of a Boulder, Colorado restaurant proves that great design doesn’t have to come with a hefty price tag.

We gave this space a new look while reusing existing materials to save on cost and minimize waste. Existing booths were repainted and re-upholstered. The floorplan was reimagined to fit the new concept, but we managed to keep the bar in the same space.

The beautiful architecture of the building was a selling point, but past tenants had experienced significant issues with the acoustics. In order to create the right vibe, we used recycled materials in three of the five ceiling bays to mitigate excess sound, and purposefully designed the bar space without TVs. The result is a completely refreshed space ready to welcome diners for a memorable meal.

Flagship Restaurant, New Restaurant Concept

Industry: Fast-Casual Restaurant    


Quiznos was on the hunt for an upscale vibe for their new concept restaurant, a high-detail flagship location in Downtown Denver.

The new fast-casual restaurant featured complex color-changing lighting, custom fit-to-suit millwork pieces, and top-of-the-line kitchen equipment. Elsy worked hand in hand with Quiznos and their outside branding team to bring their vision to life. Keeping a keen eye on details, the design team was empowered to make quick decisions on site, which allowed this project to be successful in a tight timeframe.

Quiznos was thrilled with the end result: an elevated customer experience that felt true to their national brand. The space was completed with branding agency Tesser, Fitzmartin Consulting and Far North Construction.

Everything is Bigger in Texas

When Jerry Built approached us with the notion for a better burger joint, the concept was simple: people need to know there’s MEAT in that building. Subtlety was not an option. So we boldly sliced a glowing 30-foot bull through the structure, creating a stunning visual impact. In order to provide the transparency the owners sought, the kitchen is fully in view from the seating area, allowing patrons to follow the preparation process. Each restaurant includes a mural-sized collage of community images commissioned for that locale.

A deeper message about the owners values is carried in the interior and exterior finishes. Much of the wood accents are made from ‘beetle-kill’ trees and the building cladding is covered in live plantings appropriate for the geography. Following the initial flagship design, our working relationship continued with Jerry Built, resulting in design work for four additional locations.
