The goal for the Cleveland Clinic’s Crile Food Emporium was to create a space that reflects calm and tranquility. The resulting space lets diners enjoy an emotional and sensory retreat in the midst of an otherwise stressful environment. Expansive curtainwall along three sides of the space flood it with natural light and connects to views of the outside. The kitchens are centralized within the space, creating six “neighborhoods” that offer healthy, wholesome food options. Neutral finishes and bright lighting over the neighborhoods place focus on the food as the color and expression in the space.
