KFC Karrinyup Karrinyup Road, Karrinyup - Completed 2013

 Following from the KFC Warnbro project, the client engaged Oldfield Knott Architects to provide a similar service for the KFC Karrinyup store. The challenge under the new KFC program is to achieve unity through implementation of their global brand standard but also appeal and interest through diversity in the way the standards are implemented.

 
The proximity of the Karrinyup shopping centre, the flow of traffic, and the best vantage point for creating a visual impact had to be considered. We strengthened the façade design and heightened it.
The interior and exterior colour schemes are a more contemporary approach to the old KFC standard to appeal to younger customers.
 
Despite the extensive nature of the refurbishment, by careful staging of the works, the restaurant was only completely closed for 2 weeks. For the remainder of the contract period, the business continued to trade via the drive-through lane.
 
The completed project trades strongly and continues the implementation of the “Yum” brand standard.
