Emmes Realty | Porch & Swing
Westgroup Designs worked with Emmes Realty in the recently updated Centerview campus in Irvine, to design a full-service restaurant for operator, Porch and Swing. Collaborating with the impassioned restaurant concept owner, who has roots in Charleston, South Carolina and a celebrity following in Los Angeles, we translated his vision of the east coast low country vibe into the feature dining destination, with a bar and dining space which opens to the shared plaza.
Folding glass wall panels wash the dining room with light, and open to integrate outdoor dining and walk-up service bar areas.
A private dining room features direct kitchen access and is fitted with simple detail, also enhanced with natural light and access to the outdoor patio.
The kitchen is a model of efficiency and simple function, while smartly finished in a bright palette of white and grey for low maintenance and the occasional tour from the proud Executive Chef. A true collaboration with the building owner, operator, construction team and WD, the environment reflects the philosophy of the concept; to deliver stellar product prepared with the highest quality ingredients with an environment that is relaxed, modern and always inviting. A well-deserved tribute to its roots, with true southern hospitality.
