12 Oct Project Spotlight: Donatos Pizza
Project: Donatos Pizza
Location: Nashville, TN
Designer: Sketch Blue
Product: Decorative/etched laminated glass in three different shades of red
Description: McGrory worked with Sketch Blue on making their conceptual design idea “come to life”. The idea was to create a defining ambiance in the restaurant that would unite the kitchen and sitting area for a cohesive dining experience, focusing on the Donatos color palette (red, orange, translucent) for the signature flagship look. McGrory worked with Sketch Blue on combining different glass samples to truly get the perfect color and finish, which resulted in a mixture of decorative and etched laminated glass in three different shades of red. The design won the 2016 Shaw Contract Design Is… award for best retail design.
“The most innovative addition to the Donatos Pizza experience was the edge-to-edge red glass curtain wall defining the kitchen space. This provides a luminous light source and connects the “pizza eating” experience with the “pizza making” stage. It connects our guests with our associates.” (source)
