Abstract

The goal of this thesis is to provide a case study to the design community that will offer data in regards to incorporating a specific lighting design within the design matrix of a restaurant. Having a comprehensive lighting design that allows the clientele to be comfortable and at ease within a space should be a key focus for restaurant owners. The purpose of this study is to see how lighting design within a restaurant affects a guest's experience throughout the meal and will look at how the color of the overall lighting - from cool to warm - impacts a guest's comfort level from the beginning of the meal to its completion. This initial investigation will provide design professionals with data that raises the question of the role of color and lighting design within a restaurant setting as well as assist them with their design process in order to provide a beneficial and economically viable restaurant design for their clients.
