We hope you will join us as our team looks forward to revealing for the first time our full scale project:


Leopard Landscape Prototype

The Leopard Landscape prototype is based on the constraints of fire code, health code, and daylighting.  We turned the Crisp Pizza Bar atrium ceiling into a new terrain of cuboids that create a warm ambiance and act as a keystone to the space.

As the different restrictions revealed themselves to us, our designs and inspirations changed with them.  If it were not for this iterative process, we would not have created such an alluring design.
