Cava Grill by Core Architecture, Bethesda

A.R.E. Awards – Restaurant/Fast Food – Grand Prize

This fast-food rollout prototype features a modern, Mediterranean style with simple, rustic finishes, custom copper light fixtures, and digital wall graphics depicting scenes of pastoral Greece. Millwork and furniture arrangements paired with menu graphics and a custom lightbox at the entry create a separation between the dining area and queuing, and promotes clear circulation through the space.

The logo pylon acts as a light beacon to draw in foot traffic. Custom copper linear light fixtures, cylindrical spot pendants made of copper pipe, and a custom steel and LED curved bottle fixture lead customers through the queue and round out the space‘s lighting. Industrial wood booths meet existing concrete flooring to add warmth and an industrial authenticity.
