The Background Story
City Work’s of Orange Village found their competitive edge at Pinecrest Development in Beachwood, OH with Libart’s eye-catching PanoraView retractable glass wall systems. On June 15th, 2018, City Works of Orange Village opened its doors at 10 Park Ave., Suite 106, Beachwood, OH in the Pinecrest Development, greater Clevland’s shopping, dining, and living district. City Works of Orange Village is a part of a $240 million mixed-use development project by Fairmount Properties, an industry leader across multiple real estate platforms. Hosting 67 co-tenants, Pinecrest Development gained an ideal gathering place to enjoy 9,000 square feet of dining space, 3,700 square feet of which is an outdoor dining space spread across two patios.
For Tristan Dacre, Principal Architect for the City Works of Orange Village project, designing the restaurant floor plan was ultimately a balancing act between several different, functional needs. The design was structured around maximizing valuable floor space for adequate seating and efficient traffic flow for both the inside dining area and outside patio space. Dacre’s technical knowledge and creativity served as a conduit to bringing Bottleneck Management’s ideas to life by incorporating a retractable operating system to connect the two dining areas without exploiting any square footage when in the open position.
Dacre’s experience in the hospitality and restaurant industries granted him insight into the best solutions to conserve valuable floor space while maintaining the distinct look and feel that City Works provides. Dacre chose to install Libart’s PanoraView GUG-W3 Retractable Window system on the west side of the restaurant. Libart’s operable architectural solution allows guests to be seated next to the window, both inside and outside! Each bay retracts downward and consolidates its panels to create a balustrade that optimizes space utilization.
