Local Tavern, Philadelphia International, FH17

Architect of Record: Brian Viehland, Design on the Square
Initial Concept Design: iCrave
Owner: OTG Management
Contractor: EP Guidi
Location: Philadelphia International Airport, Space FH17
Completed October 2013

“Local Tavern” is a new hospitality concept for the Philadelphia airport based on the feel of some of the city’s historic architecture combined in a contemporary way.

Strong arches backlit with led lighting feature excerpts from the Declaration of Independence behind the liquor displays. Wood slat ceilings with added beams give an historic look to the space while complimenting the slate walls and flooring. Soapstone counters and abundant use of copper accents also lend to the strong materiality of the space. The restaurant/bar seats 105 patrons and features 60 different beers on tap. That’s impressive for any bar, but even more so for an airport location!

Re:vive fills the need for a stiff drink before or after your long flight.  The contemporary bright colors draw you in and the offerings keep you there.  This 2300 square foot space packs in an impressive amount of seating, service and equipment without feeling crowded.  In addition to a drink and a game on the TV, the bar features USB ports and power outlets at each seat to recharge your devices while you wait for your connecting flight.  It is currently the highest grossing location this client has in the airport.

Red Mango – Auntie Anne’s Kiosk, JFK International, American Terminal

Architect: Brian Viehland, Design on the Square
Owner: Independent Franchisee
Contractor: TBD
Location: JFK International Airport, American Airlines Terminal
Proposed Concept

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.

Sky Asian Bistro, Philadelphia International, C-5

Architect of Record: Brian Viehland, Design on the Square
Initial Concept Design: iCrave
Owner: OTG Management
Contractor: Sachse Construction
Location: Philadelphia International Airport, Space C-5
Completed: January 2012

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.
