Which has been your most exciting project to date?
The Acquaint Communications office in Saudi Arabia was an exciting project because we faced a lot of challenges due to the pandemic.
In the F&B sector, creating the concept of Mozzarella Factory, an Italian cheese store and café, was complicated due to the multifunctional aspect and limited size of the space.
What are the latest trends in F&B design and how are you able to integrate them into your projects?
In quick serve restaurant (QSR) concepts, customers want to pick up their food quickly and more efficiently. With the increase in mobile ordering due to the pandemic, many customers want to have their food ready to go by the time they arrive so they don’t mingle with customers or employees. SK Design thus created a new QSR concept with minimum interaction and more signage to improve the customer experience.
In casual dining outlets, SK Design implemented social distancing practices and touchless experiences with minimum interaction. One of our favorite F&B design trends is “Vacation Chic.”
What defines a popular F&B design?
The first thing that stands out is the shop’s facade followed by the lighting design. The mix between building materials and original furniture creates a unique combination that sticks in customers’ minds.
