School" - Gadabout Dining Establishment:
Created and operated OLD ABBOTT SCHOOL and gadabout
dining establishment, Houston, Texas.
Old Abbott School was a unique dining
It expressed the history of the building and
highlighted the "fun days of childhood" now in a grown up dinning
establishment ~ complete with pinball machines, chalk to write on the walls
It became know for it's burgers and excellent food, while keeping it simple.
The interior design and unique utilization of space significantly increased
the success of the restaurant and overall unforgettable dinning experience.
Taking an old "nothing building" and making something unique about it and
it's history are part of what makes restaurant architecture a challenge.
Everything must be part of one thought or theme. This firm likes to
"think out of the box."
Restaurant architecture does not have to come
for the "cookie cutter" brand boxes. You can establish a very unique
or "one of a kind" establishment that expresses your identity.
help with that ~ we specialize in "unique" - totally expressions of your
designs and desires for your establishment.

all of that from his professional experience and creative design ideas; who

the perfect hamberger ~ Houston Business Journal, week of August 16, 1976 -
