Eastern Shore Food Court

A boat-building, sail-making, American Naval fleet-hosting hub since the mid 1800s, Annapolis is a treasure trove of color, pattern and seaworthy materials; all good things we borrowed when designing the Eastern Shore Mall food court. Semaphore, boardwalk planks, nautical rope and saturated color frame the space, while a ceiling-mounted school of stainless steel “fish” lead visitors through the hall from the outdoor plaza. Here our approach was holistic: to anchor (pun intended) the large food court with specialty lighting, rope details, boardwalk-style floor patterns that reinforce traffic circulation, and customized banquettes in shapes that mimic galley seating, all to enhance customer experience and overall ambiance.
