The concept for Earls Crossroads, and future Earls locations, was to open and lighten the space while incorporating timeless materials that would patina over time. Ensuring design longevity, natural stone, wood, leather and concrete were used throughout the space. Creating a cohesive customer experience between multiple restaurant locations, McKinley Burkart aligned the design with the national brand. By focusing on a consistent tone, with distinct recurring components, rather than a cookie-cutter design, each earls kitchen+bar location, is unique yet on-brand. The overall aesthetic creates the ideal space for comfortable and stylish dining and embodies notions of a laid-back cool vibe.
