Olives by Massad's

Mankato, MN | Commercial

Overview

ISG designed Olives by Massad’s to seamlessly integrate with its hotel.


Opportunity

Olives by Massad’s wanted its interior design to match the vibrancy of its entrees and support an intimate dining experience.

Solution

With a vision to be a restaurant of bold flavors, Olives was designed to provide an unforgettable dining experience with equally bold design elements including dark woods, rich colors, and textiles. The interior reflects not only its mission, but the menu of classical Mediterranean and American cooking with a slight European flair. The contemporary, warm and inviting atmosphere was created in part by a continual design flow that begins as patrons enter from the hotel.

The custom lighting fixtures—reminiscent of Mediterranean canopies—are made from imported Israeli silk and are visible to passersby through the many windows along the street. By design, the seating is a balanced mix of private booths, and views into the open kitchen. The restaurant is scaled to create an intimate evening dining experience for the public and hotel guests; and also to accommodate the more functional side of being the exclusive restaurant in a hotel, including catering for meetings, hotel guest breakfast buffets, and room service offerings.
