Our love for collaboration and deep culture-diving can lead to long-term relationships with some really great brands. But more than just good phone conversations, our work for clients becomes a dynamic dance of decisions. And for the last four years, our relationship with Primanti Bros. has been a ball.
The current business model for the Primanti Brothers’ restaurant is to move into defunct existing restaurant buildings and retro-fit them for the regionally iconic sandwich chain. This not only saves money, but it allows Primanti to stay green in a typically carbon-heavy industry. But an approach like that can make for unique design challenges at every turn.
Designing a retrofit for an old Lone Star Steakhouse meant Nvironment got to blend the designs with the existing back-of-house food-service vendor. This kind of collaboration is what we’re best at, and our interior and exterior adaptive designs merged nicely to showcase this hometown brand.

Primanti Bros. asked for construction documents only, and, while we specialize in full design and documentation, we enjoy bringing a brands vision to life. These documents included both interior and exterior studies as well as a fluid process outline between the brand, the Food Service vendor, and the existing site.
Collaboration is more than just an aspiration for us; we believe in it so much we added it to our name. To see more of our capabilities in challenging circumstances, check out what we did for Hooters.
