Description
Wild Eggs is a new, highly successful breakfast, brunch, and lunch restaurant located in bustling DuPont Circle. The building was occupied for 20+ years by a Tex-Mex franchise and a deli. Swope was tasked with transforming the aging facility into a “bright, wake-up” environment that literally and figuratively says “Good Morning!” This was accomplished with a creative interior lighting plan and pastel hued finish selections inside and out. In addition to interior design and environmental graphics, Swope was involved in naming the Wild Eggs concept and designing tabletops, menus, and staff uniforms. Perhaps the most inspired design element is the translucent “egg wall” and egg yolk-colored epoxy flooring that greets patrons as they enter Wild Eggs.
