Torchy’s Tacos—College Station, TX / Restaurant
This project was an adaptive reuse of an existing restaurant in College Station, Texas (Torchy's Tacos first store in the region). Our work called for a complete renovation and repurposing of both the exterior and interior of the existing building.
Reflective pavement markers were creatively
repurposed to create graphic wall textures throughout
the interior and exterior.
To transform the space into an engaging, on-brand, Torchy’s environment that could cater to all generations, our team focused on efficient space planning and fluid indoor/outdoor seating.
While being situated on a busy college avenue could be a negative, we embraced it as an opportunity to create a vibrant, street-facing vertical trellis could act as both excellent signage as well as a privacy screen for outdoor seating.
Each seating area was designed with subtle differences to invite customers to explore a new place to sit with each visit.
