Aqimero Opens at the Ritz-Carlton

A Roman-style redesign

In conjunction with LW Design of Dubai, CosciaMoos Architecture was hired by the Ritz-Carlton Hotel in Philadelphia to renovate their lobby restaurant into Aqimero, a Richard Sandoval restaurant. The restaurant is located in the iconic marble lobby, which is modeled after the Pantheon in Rome. The design challenge was to maintain the historicity of the space while updating it for Chef Sandoval’s show kitchen. A wood-burning grill is housed behind glass and visible from most seats in the restaurant. Aqimero officially opens on June 23, 2016.
