█ BREEZE BAR AND GRILLE at SHERATON VISTANA VILLAGES
Orlando, FL : 
GDP developed a revamped interior and layout for this existing resort restaurant. The proposal focused on the interplay of geometry and clean lines to create a modern dining environment. Tension is created through the careful balance of warm:cool, soft:hard, light:dark. A custom designed dimensional wall and a centrally situated brick masonry wall lend weight and drama to the composition.
Prior to GDP's involvement the space had undergone a series of haphazard improvements that rendered the floor plan disjointed, dark, and inefficient. Restitching the dining space to the lobby and bar and creating a feeling of breathable openness became a major design priority. Converging lines, shifts in materiality, dynamic lighting design, and a flowing floor plan all create the feeling of spaciousness. As an added element of programming and in an effort to further extend views, a series of over-sized operable windows enables the dining room to open onto the patio.
