can you figure out where i am?
look carefully at the pictures, and let me know when you figure it out:
a close up of the above wall covering.
hand scraped wood floors.
textured plexiglass panel separation.
closeup of one of the three different countertops.
detail of regular height chair.
still having trouble?
let go inside the restrooms. maybe that will help...
fireplace. complete with a cozy ottoman.
still trying to figure it out?
how about a bigger hint....
are you are shocked as i was?
(and yes, behind the etched golden arches on that glass is a water feature!)
can you believe the finishes in this joint??
i just HAD to post this!
hey, i know all the hoopla surrounding mcdonalds....i agree that most of their food is not very healthy, and that we, as amercians eat way too much it, BUT, as a designer, i was totally impressed with this new mcdonlads that opened near my home. honestly, when my family and i first walked in, i felt like i was in an upscale cafe. i really appreciate all of those little and not so little details and layers that go into making a space feel cozy and interesting...and the design team behind these new restaurants did a great job accomplishing that!
what did you think?
did you figure it out? and if so, when?
have you been in similar mcdonalds?
do you like that the interiors of some fast food restaurants have been "super sized"?
does if effect how many times you will or will not eat there?
let me know...i am so interested in this!
