Designed by Rockwell Group, Gavi Italian eatery is one of several concept venues OTG Management has partnered with DCL to create for their reimagined United Airlines terminals at George Bush Intercontinental Airport in Houston. OTG relied on DCL’s expertise to engineer, fabricate and install the venue’s decorative architectural features, including the wine bar and kitchen canopies, bar shelving displays, the stunning wine garden tree sculptures, the market displays, and signage. For the al-fresco inspired wine garden, DCL fabricated the life sized tree sculptures from aluminum and steel, with over 20,000 custom cast polycarbonate leaves, prototyped using 3-D printing. The polycarbonate material was a perfect solution that was both safer and lighter than glass, creating the same shimmering effect and achieving the design intent. Every detail from the custom fiberglass urns to the cast aluminum iPad holders and speaker mounts was meticulously engineered, fabricated and installed by DCL.
