Scarpetta already had a full outdoor dining installation that needed a refresh when we started working with them in spring 2021, which needed to be taken down to allow for roadworks on 29th St.
For Scarpetta 1.0, we applied a novel approach to sustainable materials and material flows. We salvaged a lot of the plywood from the old structure and integrated it into our kit-of parts for their new structure. Using the repeatable design from our previous restaurants, the structure is not only affordable, but also adaptable to different seasons.
For Scarpetta 2.0, we winterized the original structure by adding de-mountable windows and sliding doors to the facade. The facade is a wall system, meaning it can be easily disassembled and reconfigured as needs change. The plexi and plywood used in the wall system was also salvaged from Scarpetta's original structure. The walls will be disassembled and stored when summer arrives, and re-assembled in colder seasons.
