The Grotto is a two-level dining destination for the Grandscape lifestyle center in The Colony, Texas. The first
level is comprised of two pedestrian promenades flanked by exclusive patio dinining experience. The promednades are connected by a bridge that serves as a viewing terrace which allows the visitors to discover the quaint/homie/elegant grotto below.
The grotto space is designed for unique outside dining experience with lush courtyard spaces, intimate garden lounging while being surrounded by draping vines and tree canopy shading. It imitates the serinity of tranquil gardens that allows the visitor to escape the active outmosphere of a shopping center. Moreover, it becomes aunique destination for elegant and sophisticated important ocassion dining for visitors .
As part of HTH Architects design team, and collaborating with landscape designer Ochsner Hare & Hare, I was responsible for designing, drawing, and modeling the facades for the individual restaurants and the overall architectural experience of the grotto.
