P.F. Chang’s chain of upscale Chinese-inspired casual dining restaurants is best known in the United States. However, the contemporary bistros operate in 13 other countries around the world and recently completed the opening of one of 3 Canadian locations in Laval, Quebec.
Aria Group Architects, Inc. has a long standing relationship with P.F. Chang’s and has designed spaces for the chain previously. The firm was engaged to design the Laval restaurant.
“P.F. Chang’s is not a cookie-cutter brand. Each location is designed differently depending on the market and the space available,” explained Shannon Sterne, Senior Architectural Designer at Aria Group Architects, Inc. “The design intent of this location was to maintain the recognizable feel of P.F. Chang’s, and apply that to a different market using fresh, modern lighting and design elements.”
