Great outdoor seating, has a softer industrial feel which I think will work nicely within the hard-edged container spaces.
This is the "modern bistro" seating I am referring to for my space adjacent to the deli and dairy. They do not offer umbrellas through this company, so I chose a black suncloth type textured umbrella in my model.
These chairs are extremely durable and come in custom colors- I would like to go with white to keep it a clean look, but I know in reality it would be hard to keep white chairs clean, any thoughts?
Close-up of the deli store, "Chop'n'slice". The back of house area will not be open like the dairy store because I figured people wouldn't want to see meats being sliced! This is an in-and-out space, meaning I don't want people to linger. I am having a prepared sandwich case right at the entrance for grab-n-go eats, where people can then move outside to the modern bistro area.
The dairy store, "Dairyair". The layout of this space allows people to sit and enjoy their purchases, such as ice cream, which you might want to eat right away. Much like the bakery setup, this won't be a space to go in and out quickly, I want the customers to linger a little longer and enjoy the space, so more attention to detail was taken.
Here's a close-up shot of that area. It's adjacent to the driveway that accesses the underground storage containers. I felt these containers would also serve as a visual block for this part of the site... delivery areas typically aren't seen and are behind buildings.
This is a shot from the open air seating area that is adjacent to the "farmer's market" area. I wanted to mimic/accentuate the staggered effect I created with the layout of my shipping containers, and I felt this would acheive that. it creates a really interesting space where people can gather in a shaded space since there are no trees in this part of the site.
This is a close-up of the courtyard space that I created. Again, I'm trying to accentuate the staggered effect I created with my container layout, so I created a modern, sort of minimalist site that was inspired by the area in front of the Shaw Center in downtown Baton Rouge. The fountains will not only serve as visual interest, but I want them to be able to tilt at night to water the adjacent landscaping. You can also see the start of bike parking.
Here's a close-up of another seating area adjacent to the deli and dairy store. The 40' container you see in the background is where I am proposing public restrooms to be housed. The idea behind this space is to create a modern bistro setting, but it definitely needs further development.
