Galliford’s Restaurant & Tavern at Southwick Zoo

Mendon, MA
Architect:

A zoo might not be a place you would expect to find fine dining, but Southwick’s Zoo is aiming to change your expectations. Galliford’s Restaurant & Tavern is a new addition to the zoo, honoring the late family patriarch and zoo President, Robert Galliford Brewer. With a rustic elegance, the space makes stunning use of earth tones and soft lighting, and seamlessly incorporates oversized diamond REVRB™ Acoustical Panels customized to accommodate recessed lighting and speakers as well as gorgeous copper pendant lights. But while the diamond panel fixtures are the aesthetic focal point, the real showpiece is what you DO NOT see: twenty-five foot long, solid white REVRB™ panels lining the soffits of all three coffered ceiling trays.
