The 2018 rd+d awards

Best Limited-Service Restaurant Design

Gotham Market Brooklyn 2017 30

Winner

Gotham Market at the Ashland, Brooklyn, New York

Gotham Market at The Ashland had to respect the cultural and historic neighborhood in which it resides and to harmonize eight distinct venues in one coherent space. Though it’s a new space, the design team wanted it to feel like it had always been there. A mix of exposed industrial materials and sophisticated touches impressed the judges. “They did a good job of using bold statement pieces” like the black steel pipe chandeliers that feature 180 hand-blown glass globes. “There are distinguishable elements to each place, but the space is still cohesive,” the judges said.
