Aria Group Received NEWH TOP ID Award
NEWH Top ID Award
The Chicago Chapter of NEWH, The Hospitality Industry Network, recently recognized Aria Group as a Top Interior Design Firm for the third year running. The NEWH Top ID award recognizes design firms who are active in their local NEWH chapter, make significant contributions to hospitality design and who practice design excellence. Megan Walsh, Senior Associate, and Liz Neuffer, Senior Designer, attended the Award Ceremony to accept the award on behalf of Aria Group. It was held in the Chicago Merchandise Mart during the NEWH Regional Trade Show. Aria Group is proud to be recognized by the NEWH Chicago chapter and we look forward to continued participation in future NEWH events.
In addition to accepting the award, Megan and Liz were part of a panel that discussed trends in Hospitality Design. They showcased the design of one project, describing the inspiration and design process of the Del Frisco’s Double Eagle Steakhouse in San Diego.
Honored to be recognized by NEWH
Walter Pancewicz, Vice President of Aria Group, shared his thanks on behalf of the company. “Aria Group is truly honored to be recognized as a Top ID recipient in 2019. Design is our passion at Aria Group, so it means a lot to us to have our efforts recognized by NEWH… We’re grateful to our clients for the opportunity to partner on some of the most creative and interesting projects in the hospitality industry. We’re also grateful for our consultant and contractor partners without whom our design efforts could not come to fruition. Thank You!”
Del Frisco’s Double Eagle Steakhouse San Diego
Del Frisco’s Double Eagle Steakhouse is located in the new BRIC mixed-use development in San Diego, California. The program includes two bars, two dining rooms, five private dining rooms, an expansive patio, and a rooftop terrace. At the beginning of the project, our client tasked us with delivering a distinctive design that reflects the local region. We approached the design with the ocean and Southern California living as our inspiration.
“Laid back luxe” became our tagline for the project. We injected this lavish restaurant with a bit of effortless California cool and we brought the outdoors in. We reflect the ever-present views of the San Diego Bay by keeping the overall design light and airy as well as by introducing subtle nautical themes. Ocean-inspired gradients were applied throughout the design. Mid-Century Modern furnishings and native succulents on the patios evoke the feel of the SoCal region.
Aria’s team for this project consisted of Walter Pancewicz, Principal; Dave Nash, Senior Associate; Megan Walsh, Senior Associate; Leslie Ott, Project Designer; Elizabeth Neuffer, Senior Designer; Kristin Mrozinski, Project Coordinator; Megan Davey, Architectural Designer; and Kyle Miller, Architectural Technician.
