Woodfire Gourmet Pizzeria

Kurzman Architecture teamed up with interior design firm Siren Design Studio for this  2,400 square foot restaurant in Algonquin, Illinois, featuring gourmet specialty pizza with exotic toppings cooked in a stone pizza oven. The gourmet pizza is complemented with an assortment of tasteful pastas, sandwiches, soups, cappuccino with dessert and wine. The restaurant features a custom canvas mural painted by muralist Greg Gove in an oversized dark wood frame along with the wood-fired pizza oven itself, which is adorned with a decorative tile surround. The restaurant involved meeting strict McHenry County Health Department requirements, coordinating extensive landlord criteria, and managing tenant permit review processing in collaboration with the landlord’s building shell permits.
