Cafe Deluxe features Kolbe windows and doors, inside and out, to extend an open invitation

Cafe Deluxe in Gaithersburg, Maryland's Washingtonian Center opened last November to an eager clientele. The new Gaithersburg location features a large indoor/outdoor bar, a lakefront patio for 100 diners, and more doors and windows than any of the other properties.

"The new Gaithersburg location features light-filled interior spaces with views of the Washingtonian Center boardwalk," Marino elaborates. "Folding windows open up the interior bar to the patio and several French doors connect the main dining room to the outdoor dining. In the interior, dining rooms are divided by a series of operable windows and doors, which offer open areas, private and semi-private dining."

Before Café Deluxe opened in Gaithersburg, the existing space was remodeled completely. Involved throughout the project's design and construction, Marino worked closely with Tony DePaul, vice president of construction for

Tom Lorber,

"Kolbe's windows and doors provided a beautiful custom appearance with many standard products. We received excellent customer service and design assistance from Tom Lorber," praises Marino. "The design team and owners were an integral part of the design process with Kolbe's architectural sales and design team to ensure that the details and product functions met the owner's budget and design goals."

These product specifications were decided early in the project's design as the construction timeline allowed just three months for substantial completion. "We were awarded the project in July and the space needed to be weathertight by October to finish the interior construction by November," notes DePaul. "We couldn't wait for the openings to be made on site before ordering the windows and doors. We carefully reviewed the documents and confirmed the measurements."

DePaul continues, "Kolbe and Shenandoah handled everything very well – from engineering to fabricating to delivery. It was a painless operation for such a tight schedule. The quality of Kolbe's windows and doors is excellent. It looks exceptional."

Marino agrees and adds, "I look forward to our next project together."
