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.

This 2300 square foot restaurant and bar at the Philadelphia International Airport required that the old restaurant be stripped out to the studs and completely reconfigured. The new design is sleek and modern with open exposition cooking, fresh sushi bar and a full assortment of alcoholic beverages.
Design on the Square was responsible for taking the design concept into full construction drawings and details as well as construction administration.

Location: San Francisco International Airport
Status: Proposed Concept
This concept location was proposed for the San Francisco International Airport. “Bliss” Gelato, Crepes & Waffles is a dessert concept that showcases the offerings and flavors of the San Francisco Bay area. Similar to the proposed product line, the kiosk design is fun, exciting, and unique.
The small 300 square foot space has been carefully designed to accommodate gelato, crepes, waffles, bottles beverages and coffee service while also providing seating and sufficient support space for the business. Careful planning allows for maximum efficiency in a tiny area without sacrificing functionality. The design invites customers in as much as the sight of fresh gelato and the smell of warm crepes and waffles and the layout guides the customer smoothly from one product offering to the next.
Design on the Square, LLC developed this concept design, plan, and three dimensional modelling. Renderings shown were generated by a separate rendering consultant.

A 16 year “cart” tenant of the airport has decided to take the plunge and invest in his first ever enclosed store. This small space at the airport posed a challenge since it has only one usable wall for retail and a triangular footprint. With some creative planning a workable solution was derived that utilized standard casework pieces to create a custom feel.
Architect: Brian Viehland, Design on the Square Owner: Private Residence Contractor: Old World Construction Location: Trenton, NJ Completed: Summer 2011
This 1936 Tudor home had seen years of neglect. The old pine finger-jointed Tudor board were rotting and large cracks had formed in the stucco. A complete removal of the front facade down to the bare studs allowed for updates to the electrical wiring in that wall, installation of insulation, and new Zip-System wall sheathing.
An 8′ bay window with a copper standing seam roof added depth to the front of the house. The new Tudor boards were cut from Brazilian Mahogany and extend all the way to the peak of the roof, making the house look larger. Quality details were used including copper flashing at all horizontal elements and biscuit joints at each intersection of the timbers. 1″ diameter hardwood pegs were placed in the wood joints for an authentic old-world appearance. The new three-layer hard coat stucco exterior was kept 1/2″ back from the face of the timbers to create a subtle shadow line, accentuating the construction.
This project not only increased the curb appeal of the home, but also corrected problems with water infiltration, electrical concerns, and energy conservation.
