Arcadian Food & Drink
Arcadian Food and Drink • Gordon Square Arts District • Cleveland, Ohio • Robert Maschke Architects
Located within the Detroit-Shoreway neighborhood west of Cleveland, Arcadian Food & Drink is a 4,621sq.ft. adaptive-reuse project that exemplifies that great architecture can even be found in “smaller” projects. Residing amongst several theaters, galleries and local shops, the exterior itself of the Arcadian is helping to further activate the existing streetscape. The main design feature that one can find throughout the Arcadian is a perforated metal screen that can be viewed exteriorly on the facade and in various locations in the interiorly. Also, the interior is adorned with bamboo walls and surfaces, that paired with the darker accent tones and the white chairs and bar, truly give this restaurant a modern feel. Many of the forms within the space intertwine and fold within each other giving a very dynamic, abstract feel to the interiors. One last highlight to the interiors is a living herb wall which the kitchen is able to gather fresh herbs from daily.
