Detail in Contemporary Bar and Restaurant Design

Drew Plunkett and Olga Reid

$50.00

Bars and restaurants need to be assertive. Customers tend not to visit them to satisfy basic appetites for food or drink but for the social opportunities. Their interiors need to occupy the imagination of their customers and to whet the appetite for a return visit. The design that gets the formula right will do as much to prolong the life of the business as the products on offer.

As this book demonstrates, the conventions and mechanics of eating and drinking influence how bars and restaurants are conceived in different regions of the world. Whatever the final result users are in sustained, intimate contact with the elements of the space they inhabit and detailing must be refined enough, and visually rich enough, to withstand prolonged scrutiny.

This book includes a wide range of international projects and for each one there is a descriptive text, colour photographs, floor plans, sections and construction and decorative details. A bonus CD-ROM contains all the drawings as printed in the book, in both EPS and DWG (generic CAD) formats.

Drew Plunkett was Head of the Department of Interior Design at the Glasgow School of Art. He is the author of Drawing for Interior Design (2009), Construction and Detailing for Interior Design (2010) and co-author, with Olga Reid, of Detail in Contemporary Retail Design (2012).

Olga Reid has practiced interior design in London, the USA and Russia, specialising in exhibitions and public art projects. She also teaches interior architecture at London Metropolitan University.
