Taverna Greka Restaurant was a challenging yet rewarding Commercial Interior Design Project. Taverna Greka is located in New Westminster Vancouver BC. This restaurant is family owned and had a variety of inconsistent renovations done when Beyond Beige Interior Design was hired to design a “new meets old” vision. The goal was to keep the traditional Mediterranean style but add a flare that would attract a younger market. Obtaining this goal was complex, as the space was large and the budget was small. Beyond Beige Interior Design wanted the environment to be innovative but not oppose the classic Grecian design. One of the best new features is the casual lounge where guests can enjoy appies and watch sports, a completely different experience from the more intimate dining with a beautiful view at the back of the restaurant. Vancouver Interior Designer, Reisa Pollard loved designing a space that really needed some tender love and care. She found that having old elements of design meet with newer elements was very rewarding. Taverna Greka Restaurant is now a go to for authentic Greek eats. The result is a restaurant for a new generation to enjoy while retaining the homage to the roots of the owners.
