Wicked Taco

Finally wrapped up the design for a new restaurant in Raleigh NC. We anticipated being provided much of the conceptual design by another designer but fortunately for TEAM IONIC we were afforded the opportunity to develop much of the designs both inside and out. The project consisted of renovating an existing vacate Kentucky Fried Chicken restaurant of about 3000 square feet. It was a complete gut of the front interior dining area as well as laying out and reutilizing much of the same kitchen plan to minimize costs.

Once we developed the interior seating plan, it was decided that more interior seating would be necessary. With restrictions from easement requirements from overhead power lines and existing drive thru lanes, IONIC was able to incorporate a ten foot addition on the front which allowed to create a new branding image and entry.

The front facade is clad in several rustic type materials including reclaimed tobacco farm barn wood, galvanized coorigated metal and some ledger stone around a few accent columns. The new added dining area opens up to the outside with operating overhead doors allowing extended outdoor dining and fresh air. Both the stone and the metal come down into the interiors giving that inside/outside feeling.

The ceiling with the existing portion of the dining was exposed and painted wood trusses which allowed the round duct work to be an accent weaving through the webs. Lighting of similar industrial flair highlight the various features inside including punctuations of metal and barn wood as an interior finish. Logos and graphics will aborn much of the interior walls as BIG RIVER will decide final placement for much of this work.

We were excited about this new chain of restaurants that will eventually be sprinkled across the east near most of the college university markets. This one just may be the first of many as we are currently under plan review at the city of Raleigh and have sent the project out for bidding by general contractors specializing in restaurant work and fast pace construction methods.

This should be a WICKED one guys. Be sure to check back regularly as we hope to be under construction by the middle of February and complete a few short weeks later.

Everything is a team effort
