Restaurant Interior Design Sustainability Trends 2023

2023 is the year that sustainability and social consciousness in new restaurant design and construction will engage the industry. With an increased awareness of their impact on the environment, customers are actively looking for restaurants that demonstrate sustainable solutions to global issues more than ever before. Restaurants and cafes will begin to advertise at scale how they are actively reducing their environmental footprint through their use of sustainable building materials and deployment of alternative power. The restaurant industry has never been more vibrant and forward-thinking as it will be in 2023. We have identified some key trends that are really pushing the boundaries of sustainable creativity when it comes to new and upgraded designs. The following are the top ten sustainable trends we have identified in 2023.

1.LEDs or Compact Fluorescent Lightbulbs

While LEDs are not new, they facing increasing demand. Lighting styles are integral when it comes to pushing the limits of what a restaurant experience can be, ranging from theatre lighting to moody dark spaces perfect for intimate dinners. Consumers are becoming more aware of accessibility, color schematics, environmentally friendly materials and unique welcoming designs where all restaurants become worth entertaining guests!

LED and CFL bulbs use less energy than traditional lightbulbs, thus represent an obvious choice for reducing energy waste. When it comes to efficiency, CFLs use about one fourth the amount of energy of a regular bulb but last 10 times longer. In comparison, LEDs require about the same amount of energy as CFL’s yet shine brighter over the course of up to 25 times longer.

Finding bulbs in different colors and shapes to coordinate with restaurant decor is not a challenge; LED and CFL models come in many sizes and styles and are available at many specialist vendors as well as mainstream wholesalers/retailers such as Ferguson Home Depot.

Sustainable value:Reduced power use

Reduced manufactured material & energy cost

Reduced replacement cost

Updating Your Home to Support Relaxation and Remote Work

Updating your home to make it more relaxing while ensuring it’s still a good place for remote work seems challenging initially. That’s especially true if you tend to have an always-on mentality when your workplace is only a few steps away.

However, it’s possible to make your home both a haven and a productive workplace with the right approach. Here are some updates that support relaxation and remote work, courtesy of Robert Ancill at TNI Design.

Create an Inspiring Home Office

Having a distinct work area in your home helps you limit distractions and keep your work organized while maintaining a better work-life balance. Since that’s the case, redecorating a space and turning it into an inspiring home office is a wise move – and it might even be tax deductible!

One easy way to begin is with paint. Specific colors have productivity-boosting benefits, so choose one that creates the right feel in the space. Whether you paint the whole room or focus on a single accent wall is up to you. As long as the hue is visible, it can help.

When it comes to office furniture, make ergonomics a priority so that you remain comfortable and reduce your odds of certain injuries. Invest in desktop and drawer organizers, too, making it easier to keep everything in its proper place. Get a low-maintenance plant to add some life and freshness, and add a family photo to help you make ethical decisions.

Guaranteed Service, Quality, Schedule, and Creativity E112

The Tycoons welcomed Robert Ancill, CEO of TNI Design, to the show. Robert’s story is a true testament to being adaptable to change. One of his favorite quotes is by Richard Branson, “If someone offers you a job, take it and figure it out later.” He likes the challenge of identifying problems and creating solutions. This has become a part of TNI Design’s business model to evaluate their work and collect data to understand if the design truly meets the client’s needs.

TNI Design operates on four mantras: Guaranteed service, Quality, Schedule, and Creativity. By holding to these principles, the TNI team maintains standards while creatively learning, growing, and changing. This is how Robert adapted over the years and how TNI Design came to fruition after splitting the company in 2015. As a standalone design and architect firm, TNI Design provides focus in their core competency areas and continues to deliver consistent results.

Exploring Life & Business with Robert Ancill of TNI Design

Today we’d like to introduce you to Robert Ancill.

Hi Robert, thanks for joining us today. We’d love for you to start by introducing yourself.
TNI Design was originally the interior design department of The Next Idea Restaurant Consultancy, (an International concept development agency specializing in restaurants, hotels and cafes).

Our clients were so impressed with our restaurant designs they would ask us to design their office or home or another building; as such it became a bit weird as we were designing luxury houses yet our online presence was all about restaurants.

In 2015, we launched TNI Design into its own entity and developed the business separately as a Design and Architecture Agency.

I’m sure you wouldn’t say it’s been obstacle free, but so far would you say the journey have been a fairly smooth road?
Ha ha – it is never a smooth road when starting a business, even as an offshoot of another business. Our challenges range from finding the right team, partners and of course clients.

Covid was of course a struggle as our main client base closed down, and we were forced to pivot our services and address new markets with limited experience.

Alright, so let’s switch gears a bit and talk business. What should we know?
Based in Los Angeles, TNI Design [http://www.tnidesign.com] specializes in architecture, interior design and landscape design. Read More

Lifestream video analytics tool

 

Lifestream is a powerful and intuitive video analytics business that provides unique, and never before available, insights for restaurants and food and beverage operations to optimize operations and identify data-based customer behavior analytics.

Lifestream is a highly effective solution for measuring true guest satisfaction, keeping track of speed of service, assessing how staffing levels match customer demand on an hour to hour basis, as well as analyzing new initiatives such as interior design and layout changes.

Customer behaviors that have been notoriously hard to track include the percentage of people who walk in and then out of an establishment without making a purchase, true wait times at drive through restaurants, and real wait times from order time to table delivery. Sampling yields significant research results, however, with the delta that can be present between a sample and the real customer base, sample errors can occur. That is, of course, until now!

Lifestream resolves these problems by providing state-of-the-art video data analysis that captures critical information which has never before been available to restaurants. Lifestream’s AI technology can identify every human that enters a space and subsequently report their behavior in analytic format with absolute accuracy. Questions about missed opportunity, wait times, customer confusion, and dwell times can now all be answered. This provides a substantial advantage in addressing missed sales opportunities in addition to multiple other areas that will improve operations and the bottom line.

Video more than any other data source generates valuable insights based on how people actually behave, not just how they claim to behave. The more authentic the data source, the more valuable the insight. For the first time, restaurants can make deeply informed decisions by harnessing the power of their video and deploying analytics to improve their customer experience, resulting in substantial top and bottom line improvements.

New design Ideas from TNI Design

We are often asked what the ‘TNI’, in our name, stands for. The answer is: The Next Idea.

We have always been a design and architecture agency that seeks to push boundaries in architectural and interior design wherever possible.

This design was for a Sports Restaurant in the Middle East. The entire design was centered around a stadium look and feel, with its own commentator’s room and different dining and lounging areas.

Sustainable Design and New Materials For Restaurants

Our focus at TNI Design is not just about sustainability. We were one of the first Design and Architecture firms to use Hemp-based construction materials and furniture. For example, in our design for Phood Farmacy, we used hemp wood for the wall and counter finishes (the equivalent of 5 trees if we used a wood finish)

#hempwood #phoodfarmacy #sustainablerestaurantdesign

As a substitute to wood, palm, another under-valued and little understood material. Examples can be found at: https://www.durapalm.com/palmtheory/. TNI design is specifying Palm Theory products in many of its new commercial and residential projects.

#sustainablematerials #sustainableinteriordesign #newdesignideas #palmtheory

Hemcrete® is a bio-composite building material made from hemp shiv (the woody core of industrial hemp) and a lime based binder called Tradical® HB.

TNI Design is exploring new ways to use Hemcrete in restaurant design. This is an exploration design with one of our favorite clients, using hemcrete as wall finish instead of gypsum board, and hempwood planters.
