HOSPITALITY DESIGN: Multi-colored Slate Adds Flair to Restaurant Design
Fiery shades of slate were added to spice up P.F. Chang's China Bistro in Seattle, WA, and to contrast the preexisting sandstone floor
Situated in Westlake Center, in the heart of downtown Seattle, WA, P.F. Chang's China Bistro was designed with warm hues of sandstone and slate. The Restaurant Studio division of MBH Architects of Alameda, CA, and the design team at P.F. Chang's collaborated on the project.
An existing sandstone floor was re-used, and 6,000 square feet of 12- x 12-inch African Multi-Color autumn-colored slate tiles from American Slate Co. were added to the space as wall tile. Marchevsky describes the slate as having â€œa variety of warm earth tone hues with orange/fiery pieces.â€
Since opening, the restaurant has been well received in the neighborhood, according to Marchevsky.
