Preliminary Circulation Studies, Service Elements and BOH "Baffling" Techniques

As culinary specialists focused on creating successful dining experiences, we have developed tools to assist Interior Designers and Architects in their planning front-of-house area programs, circulation, seating layouts and functional integration with the back-of-house elements.


With the continued evolution of show kitchens, marketplace and "cooking as theatre" approaches in all segments of hospitality, we recognize the importance of a seamless integration between the functional and aesthetic elements. 


Our ability to develop preliminary seating plans can test dining capacities, initiate table size mixes to maximize seat efficiencies, illustrate potential dining varieties, and show opportunities for table flexibility. This effort is intended to offer Interior Designers a platform to accelerate their evolution of their designs.
