Retail / Stores & Restaurant

GFF has a deep understanding of the retail and restaurant industry and we bring that knowledge and experience to all our projects. Our collaborative design philosophy centers around the new and inventive uses of materials in support of building layouts and orientations that form intimate gathering spaces where people want to linger and spend time together. Our projects strive to enhance the experience of shopping and dining by making meaningful connections between interior and exterior spaces that create a destination, and a true sense of place.
