The owners of Zinc approached Heather Bensko of Clover Design and Karin Patriquin about re-designing their 10-year-old restaurant on Chapel Street in New Haven. Zinc has a faithful following in and around New Haven, for the quality of their local foods, for the urban ambience and for their menu – both old favorites and new additions. The goal was to create a unified and updated look for the restaurant while highlighting the various zones in the long narrow space.

A strategic use of materials and sources create a meaningful change to the look and feel of the restaurant. Metal chainmail curtains create the divisions between the various zones and both obscure and reflect views. The bar area’s new acoustic clouds provide sound reduction in this potentially noisy area, while creating a special, intimate feel. We also sourced new lighting, carpet, wall finishes, and other accessories to support the various areas.

The result: an elegant palette of soft neutrals with highlights in various metals, creating a sophisticated yet relaxed atmosphere.
