sweetgreen eco-eateriy by Core Architecture, Bethesda – Maryland

January 20th, 2014 by retail design blog

Always committed to the environment, both CORE and Greens Restaurant Group, looked for ways to reuse materials, reduce chemicals, and reduce electricity use. Maintaining the same clean palette and simple lines of the original location, the new locations use salvaged hickory for the walls and millwork reclaimed from local barns. Wood recycled from old bowling alleys is used for the tables and chairs.

The new eco-eateries are substantially larger than the original Georgetown store, known for its 500 sf footprint. With the added space the new locations are able to seat 20. The design uses the graphics and colors from the Georgetown location but on a larger scale, made from sustainable paper and dye products, an oversized sweetgreen logo wall graphic is a signature design feature at all locations.
