Kitchen 21
Brooklyn, NY

Originally completed in 1924, the nautical themed Childs Restaurants is a New York City designated landmark on the Coney Island Boardwalk. The building has been restored to house Kitchen 21 – a new, five-in-one restaurant designed by EwingCole. In a nod to Brooklyn’s landmark Parachute Jump, the row of restored arched windows behind the long bar overlook the Jump while a replica of one of the double seat swings that used to freefall from the amusement ride hangs inside the restaurant. The steel structures and lighting between the arched windows were inspired by historic images of the amusement parks at Coney Island in the late 1800’s -early 1900’s: Luna Park, Steeplechase and Dreamland. The seating was designed to provide optimal viewing of the stage for the restaurant patrons when the stage doors are open. The café counters are mobile and designed to allow flexibility for the restaurant: hosting movie nights, beverage tastings, or event rentals.

Kentucky Horse Park Outdoor Stadium
Lexington, KY

EOP and EwingCole teamed up to create a new venue at Lexington’s historic Kentucky Horse Park.  The design features a permanent sideline stadium of 10,000 seats with the ability to add 20,000 temporary seats, creating a full bowl stadium.  This temporary seating feature was used when the venue hosted the World Equestrian Games in 2010.  Club and banquet facilities enable the stadium to become a major destination during non-equestrian events.

 
“Every citizen of Kentucky can be proud of their Kentucky Horse Park and the influence the new facilities will have in attracting business to our commonwealth.”
