RD+D Magazine: Patios


May/June 2015 Issue…

We were recently interviewed for
Restaurant Development + Design’s May-June Form + Function feature on Outdoor Patio design. Curious—as at the time we were right in the middle of designing our latest restaurant, Communal—an entirely outdoor patio environment.
In the article, we discuss topics such as ambiance, sustainability factors, temperature control, insect control, sun shading, equipment and mechanics, and signature features. All of these issues and more were key factors in our design at Communal—and as we complete the construction (primarily lighting, at this point) we’ll highlight more Sketchbook pages to explore how we approached this project.

An electronic version of the magazine can be accessed
here—we’re on page 70.
