OTG completely re-imagined the dining and retail experience in United’s terminals at George Bush Intercontinental Airport in Houston, a key hub in the airline’s global network. This included the addition of eight new restaurants all inspired by local Houston chefs and flavors. One of which is “Q,” a barbecue restaurant developed by Greg Gatlin of Gatlin’s BBQ, that offers fresh-smoked meats crafted with a custom-built smoker and complemented with signature rubs.
Designed by Rockwell Group and expertly fabricated by DCL (Design Communications Ltd.), the restaurant features a structure at the bar that is reminiscent of brewery kettles. To achieve the look of a flowing woven material, Banker Wire’s small scale plain crimp wire mesh pattern P-97 was crafted from stainless steel and copper. This material reflects highlights from all directions with a smooth, cool wash of light.
