Local Food Revolution

Daniel Reed Hospitality

One of the best aspects of practicing architecture is that every day is different. Likewise, every client is different. Building authentic partnerships with clients, in fact, is one of the most rewarding parts of the job.

Some clients come with the germ of an idea and want to turn it over to the architect to create a building to bring their idea to life. Other clients come with vision boards and magazine clippings, having a good grasp of the design elements they want and hoping that the architect can turn these elements into a cohesive design.

It is the rare client, however, who shows up with a design in hand, complete with 3-D models and finish selections and a plan for bespoke hand-made light fixtures.

Robby Perkins is exactly that client. As Creative Director of Daniel Reed Hospitality, a driving force in Savannah’s elite food scene, Robby Perkins knows design, and he knows restaurants. Robby graduated from Savannah College of Art and Design (SCAD) with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Architecture, and is responsible for all aspects of visual communication from interior design to branding and marketing. His partner Jamie Durrence, Managing Partner of Daniel Reed Hospitality, also brings substantial design credentials as a SCAD graduate who honed his skills in the New York fashion industry. Together, they have elevated Savannah’s renowned food scene with multiple concepts known for their impeccable designs and finely crafted menus rooted in the local food culture.
