Pretty Patty is a neighborhood burger joint located in the heart of Geneva. An homage to burger restaurants both past and present, the design incorporates nostalgic and contemporary elements within the space to create an environment that is simultaneously new yet familiar.
The project responds to the growing need for fast food restaurants to be versatile, providing memorable dining experiences for clients while adapting to quickly changing takeout and delivery needs. Through extensive research into fast food logistics and aesthetics, the design language aims to elevate materials typically associated with American diners and commercial kitchens, to convey the idea that this is both a space of consumption and production.
Metal tones including chrome and aluminum veneer are used throughout the space in different millwork and lighting elements. White tiles typically used in commercial kitchens are finished with contrasting blue grout to reinforce Pretty Patty’s identity, in an effort to combine the material identities associated with American diners and commercial fast food kitchens.
