Fogo de Chão chose Core States Group (CSG) to execute their vision because of our superior design expertise coupled with the ability to deliver with design-build. We worked hand-in-hand with Fogo de Chao throughout the design process which helped the process run efficiently and minimized redesign. Fogo de Chão’s Brazilian history and culture was the inspiration for CSG’s design concepts. We researched contemporary Brazilian architecture for massing, details, and materials. The design layers in patterns and textures are evocative of the gaucho lifestyle while incorporating Fogo de Chão brand elements for a transportive customer experience.
