Historic property in Bruges converted to unique McDonald’s branch
Monday 26 January 2015
At the end of 2014, INTOS managed to transform a historic property in Bruges into a McDonalds within a record two-week period. Large parts of the interior components are made from Corian. Its appearance and design make it a one-of-a kind branch.
In one of the key shopping streets in Bruges, in a former cobblers’ property dating back to 1527, all the elements of the interior were installed carefully and free-standing to prevent damage to the original features. This has preserved the integrity of the property and returned it to its original state. Characteristic elements are the wooden beam ceilings, open fires and shutters and even a lit historic well. All based on a design by the architects’ firm Nivoo3 in Ghent.
INTOS manufactured Corian interior elements such as the lift cores for three floors, a table, stools, refuse & service units and poster frames. As a showpiece, INTOS developed the counter and awning completely from Corian with an LED-lit front. The customer has been very positive about the success of the restaurant.
