Many food+beverage clients require design solutions for multiple locations, both nationally and internationally. McKinley Burkart recognizes the need for design that is scalable and adaptable, with individual elements that can be repeated and evolved effectively whether for two or 100 locations. Furthermore, McKinley Burkart believes in the power of interior design to develop a strong brand message and customer familiarity. The concept for Earls Crossroads, and future Earls locations, was to open and lighten the space while incorporating timeless materials that would patina over time. Ensuring design longevity, natural stone, wood, leather and concrete were used throughout the space. Creating a cohesive customer experience between multiple restaurant locations, McKinley Burkart aligned the design with the national brand. By focusing on a consistent tone, with distinct recurring components, rather than a cookie-cutter design, each restaurant location, is unique yet on-brand. The overall aesthetic creates the ideal space for comfortable and stylish dining and embodies notions of a laid-back cool vibe.

Each fall High Desert Test Sites (http://www.highdeserttestsites.com) invites artists to create experimental projects adjacent to California’s Joshua Tree National Park. This year HDTS invited Ball Nogues Studio (http://www.ball-nogues.com) to create a structure in a remote region of the Mojave Desert. This presents a unique opportunity to draw upon an unfettered landscape at a grand scale. Expanding on theories developed by earthwork artists, our project, entitled Yucca Crater (working title),will re-imagine these concepts through new methods of production linked to our cross-disciplinary artistic, architectural, design and fabrication practice.
