Hand & Crown - Al Fresco Dining Pods
Client Brief:

The Hand and Crown nr Sawbridgeworth Hertfordshire best known for its warm welcome and delicious home-made food was looking to maximise an outdoor terrace in the colder months to continue its popular al fresco dining. They wanted to offer their customers a cosy, atmospheric experience, somewhere to relax, settle in with friends and family, have a meeting or celebrate that special occasion.

What we delivered:

From our initial meeting and demonstration, it was clear the Dining Domes fit the brief perfectly and high-end finish met their expectations. Following a site visit we were able to produce a layout in the studio to scale, maximising the space and ensuring clear routes for all staff and public fire exits in line with H&S guidance.

We manufactured and installed three domes, one 12ft and two 15ft seating a capacity of 30 customers at any one time. The UniDomes featured a solid floor, nonslip vinyl finish, integrated LED up-lighting and Gul-wing doors. Inside the domes blue tooth speakers, heaters and festive lights were also added to enhance the space.

Flame retardant clear panels featured across the main frontage of the domes to create a welcoming perspective whilst remaining panels were digitally printed to provide an internal backdrop covering areas of solid brick walls. The print featured the restaurants crest with brand pantone background.

Darren Grover, Owner said “We are delighted to bring these high-end Domes to Hertfordshire. There is nothing quite like this around here and we know our customers are going to love them.  They are going to be a great addition to our already busy restaurant and give us more capacity over the festive period and beyond”.

After an extremely busy winter season, the domes are set to make a return for winter 2020-21.
