These grills are built to slide into or drop onto a space designed by the customer. They are designed for professional restaurant settings and for high-design or serious home grillers (like us!). Because they come ready to integrate with your design, the final look or capacity is limitless. Formed in high-grade 304 stainless steel, they will never corrode.
The Grillworks Architectural System Planning and Ordering Process
Our Architectural System is designed to be integrated into a hearth or base designed by the customer. This allows the maximum level of aesthetic and functional flexibility with the minimum level of engineering and installation effort at the home or restaurant. The grills come out of the crate ready to slide into their new space and get cooking.
The system is anchored by our signature framed exoskeleton. Made by hand, entirely in 304 stainless steel, this strong tubular structure houses and supports the Grillworks lift frames that carry the grill surfaces. Fully freestanding the Architectural requires no additional support. Crankwheels, pulleys, lift frames and cables come out of the crate assembled, complete and ready to go. This core offers the flexibility of a myriad of add-on accessories including South American inspired rear "brasero' fire cages, overhead and rear shelving, food suspension areas, planchas, alternate cooking surface types and of course custom ideas a creative chef may have. The system can also be finished in ceramic black and brass - the choices are nearly limitless.
To start the information or planning process with us drop an email to email@example.com or call (855) 434-3473. The Architectural system comes NSF listed and approved, and once installed can be UL/ETL listed (call for details).
The Dual 36, Dual 48 and Dual 60 Arch
The Architectural System's Dual 36 is ideal for a smaller restaurant (30-60 seats), Dual wheels and surfaces give maximum flexibility per square inch even in this modest size.
A single Dual 48 Architectural can power a live fire restaurant of up to 100 seats (depending on menu). And the same Dual 48 in a home environment is a true entertaining show-stopper.
The Dual 60 Arch is intended for large-scale built-in effect. Both in capacity and dramatic appearance the 60 delivers great rewards to the right project. Its width also allows for central room between the grill frames to place a heavy freestanding plancha, one of our most popular options on our flagship Infiernos. This grill is a good choice for restaurants of over 100 seats that plan to touch much of the menu with fire.
Ready out of the crate! When you order an Architectural System, or plan for it, we send you PDF drawings and instructions for readying your space. Once you place the order the lead time is about 10-12 weeks depending on whether yours will require customizations.
Email firstname.lastname@example.org or call (855) 434-3473 to discuss your ideas or to receive PDF drawings.
Finishes and cladding
Many home and restaurant projects are going for a specific look, so either surround the grill with the aesthetic choices they make or clad it as desired. King and Duke in Atlanta built a surrounding dark steel structure to add more patina.
We can ceramic coat many of our grills in black or other colors, and can plate some parts in brass, just ask.
The list keeps growing. The Architectural System base setup comes ready to grill, with exoskeleton, lift system and V-Channel cooking surfaces. To this you can add (so far):
- Screen mesh surfaces (small items)
- Bar surfaces
- Rear coal-producing fire cage
- Rear shelving system (ex. paella, vegetables)
- Overhead shelving (resting, suspension)
- Standing or grill surface plancha
The (single) Architectural 36, 48 and 60
We also build our Architecturals in single-wheel sizes, from 36 to 48 to 60" in width. This one pictured above was featured in Dwell Magazine and remains one of our favorite installations. In the gallery below you'll find photos of smaller,professional and home Architecturals.
Need a simple side-wheel Architectural? No problem. They are an easy drop-in to a counter or hearth installation. We call them our Open Architecturals (since they are usually in an open installation). They come in 36" 48" and 60", and can have two wheels and independent surfaces as well as one.
Again, email us at email@example.com and we'd be happy to share drawings or get you quotes for your planning. Lead times are between 10-15 weeks from order to shipment, so plan ahead! Or call (855) 434-3473.
