Rascal Flatts - Cleveland

Country Rock superstars Rascal Flatts have begun establishing a series of restaurants across the U.S..  For the Cleveland, Ohio location, renowned club designer, Ernest Roberts, and his team at Art Heavy were commissioned to design the restaurant's 10,000 s.f. interior, to function first as a dining establishment, and then later in the evening when the band hits the stage the space evolves into a music venue or dance club.  With custom designed chandeliers built of guitars and eye-glowing cow skulls, and cow-hide upholstered booth seating, the industrial chic light fixtures, and wall-to-wall video projections- Rascal Flatts will be a prime destination along Cleveland's Flats East Bank.  

In the gallery below, we show versions of the renderings with and without people.  In this project we paid special attention to the appearance of the people.  We kept the people as dark silhouettes so as to not be overly distracting, but also maintaining some shade and shadow so that they aren't completely flat.  The black and white images that follow offer a glimpse into how this effect was achieved.
