Client: Eat’n Park Hospitality Group, Inc.
Location: Upper St. Clair, Pennsylvania
Architect: NEXT Architecture, L.P.
One of the latest jewels in the crowning achievement of Upper St. Clair’s new Siena shopping center is this farm-to-table eatery. Owned by the Eat’n Park Hospitality group, this restaurant was built with sustainability and community in mind.
The neighborhood bistro feel of The Porch extends as the building extends, from the dining and bar area to outdoor seating and the annual garden of herbs and vegetables. These fresh ingredients are incorporated into the seasonally-inspired menu in conjunction with the Penn’s Corner Farm Alliance, a Community Sponsored Agriculture program.
This South Hills location has an array of natural textures, including cedar ceiling panels, a grass roof, and furniture made by The Porch staff from reclaimed materials. Beehives and a wood-fired pizza grill complete this environmentally-charged space.
Specially-commissioned artwork welcomes guests in the lobby.
We were particularly impressed with your firm’s ability to display the commitment it has to safety. It was apparent to us that the desire for a safe workplace is more than just a slogan, it is part of your company’s culture.
