DINING HITS CENTER STAGE
WOODLAND HILLS, Calif., May 02, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE)
“The stage is both a universal object and social magnet… it is dedicated to the interaction of people in any cultural context worldwide”, says architect Ole Scheeren of his award-winning design. Dean & DeLuca STAGE by Ole Scheeren has been executed by leading project management and construction firm InterServ LP.
Dean & Deluca has been a beloved institution since opening their doors to their first grocery store in 1977 in Soho, NYC. When approaching their first new concept space in Manhattan’s Meatpacking District, they wanted to continue their relentless and inventive exploration of culinary innovation with this chef-led concept with food, design, and architecture at its core. “InterServ LP assembled a great team to expertly deliver Buro Ole Scheeren’s world-class design for Dean & DeLuca. We look forward to the future of STAGE in other locations with InterServ LP”, says Sorapoj Techakraisri of Pace Development Corporation PLC, Thailand.
InterServ were engaged as management consultants in May 2018 to oversee STAGE’s final completion in addition to overseeing procurement and construction elements of this flagship concept space, as well as future store roll outs. InterServ LP’s Principal, Eli Tene and Joshua Boyle, President of Western Region, spoke of the excitement surrounding this ground-breaking project saying, “This is the first new design the brand has seen in more than a decade and brings an entirely new and innovative concept to the New York food and beverage scene. And we are honored to be the selected partner to breathe life into their vision.”
The result is a stunning, award-winning design, and a testament to InterServ LP’s process and collaboration with Buro Ole Scheeren and Dean & DeLuca.
The design centers on a freestanding stage that people can congregate around, meet and watch the preparation of the food itself. Dean & DeLuca’s new concept store launches in April 2019.
