Metropolitan Market Design

I-5 Design & Manufacture will create or remodel a warm and inviting design for your grocery store that will transform your vision into a reality. For example, with the Metropolitan Market, I-5 Design created a sleek atmosphere with the use of neutral colors and stainless steal accents. The same colors and materials were used throughout the interior to produce a modern flare that was uniform and appealing. In the produce section, our designers chose to use custom chalkboards with printed graphics, bringing out the bold colors of the produce while complimenting the architectural, urban feel. The décor package for the Metropolitan Market was designed to compliment the surrounding environment of the Pacific Northwest in a classic and contemporary way. Whatever it is you are looking for in a grocery store design, our designers can create the look you have been waiting for.

I-5 Design & Manufacture Safety

At I-5 Design and Manufacture, Safety is our first concern – for our customer and our employees. On the shop floor we have excellent, state-of-the art machinery that is high-tech, but also high-powered. Because of this, each employee is encouraged, and expected to be the eyes and ears for their co-workers, creating an extremely safe working environment. When on a job site, many times we are able to complete an entire renovation project without closing down the facility, requiring communication between each installation technician to ensure the safety of the customers that are at the venue during the renovation. We are continually discussing safety and communication at our shop and on a jobsite, whether through meetings, email, posters or phone calls. Practicing safety is a priority for us and it significantly minimizes hazardous possibilities, creating order and a more productive work environment.

The Monkey Pod Kitchen

The Monkey Pod Kitchen

Have you ever been to a restaurant that not only offers delicious, locally grown food but also has an amazing design? Monkey Pod, which is located on Maui, offers both. With its true Hawaiian spirit and energetic atmosphere, its no wonder this remarkable restaurant is a local favorite. In this venue, the color palette, décor, booth upholstery and chair patterns are fresh and bold, which gives a pleasurable and welcoming atmosphere to customers. To add interest to the bar area, brightly colored surfboards with unique Hawaiian style artwork were suspended from the ceiling, adding depth to the space and drawing the eye away from the exposed duct-work ceiling. Throughout the interior, different forms of lighting are used, such as exposed bulb light fixtures that provide adequate lighting as well as tie into the industrial flare. Check out the pictures above and let us know what you think!

Sprung Structure Remodels

Using a Sprung Structure for your facility is a great alternative to conventional construction, because of the flexibility and considerable reduction of construction time frame. However, these structures can oftentimes lack visual appeal and character, which is a vital part in creating an environment which will welcome new and repeat customers. With I-5 Design & Manufacture, your Sprung Structure can be dramatically remodeled into an inviting facility. For example, we were able to transform the Sprung Structure of the Soboba Casino into a lodge-style venue with wood beam ceilings, custom amber mica chandeliers, timber-frame structures, rock columns and more to create a more interesting and hospitable atmosphere. So let us know about your venue, we are here to help.

“The Chocolatier”

Photos of "The Chocolatier"

In my recent travels I came across a little shop called “The Chocolatier”. All of the chocolate sold in the shop was handcrafted and packaged on the islands of Hawaii. The interior of this small, one room chocolate store was designed and decorated in such a way that from the moment you walked in, you felt the uniqueness and quality of their product. From the textured walls with deep brown tones to the hand written menu boards, every element helped to create this “one of a kind” location feel. Design is not just structure, it is also the color palette, furniture, textures, lighting, art, and placement of each decor item. Above are some photos of “The Chocolatier”; I hope you enjoy them as much as I do.
