Built from the base of an existing dated kiosk, this new concept modernizes the appearance and adds a second concept to the space:
An angular, aeronautical inspired canopy of light wood and dark metal soars above the new Auntie Anne’s/ Red Mango kiosk, welcoming passengers to indulge in delicious warm pretzels and cool frozen yogurt as they wait for their flights. Lighting, signage and menu boards float from this canopy, taking it from purely aesthetic to truly functional.
The angles of the canopy are reflected in the angled glass sign panels jutting up from the floor and back-lit with LED accent lighting. The layering of the tinted glass panels reinforces the duality of the two-branded kiosk: complimentary, but contrasting in color, size and shape.
The face of the millwork is re-skinned in a new white oak veneer while the rear wall has been re-tiled with a dark gray matte tile and trimmed with the dark metal accents. These new fascia materials are both clean and contemporary without being flashy.
Finally, the new solid surface counter tops are bright and clean, wrapping around the new equipment and providing an overhang for new integrated LED lighting.
