PROJECT VIBE

Concept Mood Board

New Yorkers use specific terminologies to describe their metropolis. Freighted with subtle meaning that reflect their city's long and ethnically diverse history, BODEGAS are no different. A style so iconic, many budding restaurants and market concepts are racing to recreate this aesthetic. So how does Burger Bodega stand out among the crowd and feel unique while trying to embody such a classic look?

For starters, this bodega will be integrated into one of the most diverse and hospitable city in America. Houston is crowded with prideful ethnicities blending together. H-town is loud, proud, and not ashamed of being a bit kitsch. From it’s multi-colored graffiti walls to the prominent underground hip hop scene, slabs are competing with Critical Mass to occupy the streets. By reflecting Houston’s presence within Burger Bodega, a unique, and welcoming energy was integrated within the space. Naturally being a fast-casual approach providing fast & delicious grease, we also implemented elements of retro diners within the design. Incorporating the nostalgic design within the space really helped tie together the classic nature of Bodegas and the eccentric personality of Houston to create a distinctly enticing Burger Bodega.
