Distrito Outdoors Restaurant Designed By MDG

Distrito Outdoors

Philadelphia, PA


Chef Jose Garces decided to move quickly to create an outdoor experience for his University City restaurant during the COVID crisis in 2020. The goal was to create a budget friendly quick assembly that could be taken down and reconstructed every season that also followed COVID protocols.

In less than two weeks, the MDG team developed a plan for space that utilized the colors, vibes and themes of the interior restaurant, and presented them to the client with a rendering package. Approval was immediate, and in less than eight weeks from the start of the design process, the previously unused space was up and running.
