We partnered with restauranteur Martin Danilowicz to transition his restaurant, Martin Cooks, to the Crescendo building at 1502 Niagara Street. We highlighted the industrial elements of the space with signature utilitarian elements. True to the name of the restaurant, we created the entranceway with a dramatic and colorful rooster mural by Chuck Tingley. The bar is truly unique, seating thirty people at a bowling alley surface by Dan Topolski, while guests can enjoy the view of one of two Marana Forni wood fire rotary pizza ovens in the country. With space for 117 diners, everything serves a purpose including back booths, banquet seating, chef's table, private dining area, a patio above the private parking garage, and bar stools laid out along the windows.
