Video of Landmark Diner : internal environment




This video captures the most noticeable interior designs of Landmark Diner. You can see the cream colored drapes that are hanging from the ceiling. You can notice how part of the ceiling has different colored squares while another part is all grey and slanted upward. The video shows the light-up sign located in front of the main entrance that reads ““ Welcome to Landmark Diner. Open 24 hours. Where the Stars Meet at Nite. Dinner specials. Full Bar.” There is a painting of Atlanta to the right of the previously mentioned light-up sign. There are four cutouts of squares that seem to be equal in size in the green wall near the bar area. To the left of the main entrance, there is a wall with shelves, and on those shelves are bottles of alcohol and dark liquor. In front of this same wall, there is a register and the host stand. From the dining room, you can see the grill on which the cooks prepare the food. There is a television hanging from the ceiling in front of the entrance. There are dollar bills from different countries taped on the wall to the right of the shelves with the alcohol and dark liquor.

This picture shows one of the few two-top tables in the entire restaurant; there are about four in all. The table is set with two rolls of utensils, Parmesan cheese, salt and pepper shakers, sugar packets, and grape and strawberry jelly packets. The table is pushed against the tile wall. The baseboards beside the table appear to have some dirt on them. The table is noticeably smaller than all of the other tables in the restaurant. The table is located in the middle area of the dining room, across from one of the marble columns.

In this panorama of Landmark Diner, you are able to see most of the overall layout of the restaurant. Towards the center of the picture, there is 3-foot dividing wall with twenty small plants on top of it. On the other side of the wall that is not visible in the photo, there are two more tables and seating at the bar counter that can sit up to fifteen people. There is a glass cooler located beside the bar counter with a variety of cakes on display. On the left side of the picture, there are two marble columns with three booths sandwiched in-between them. Behind the bar, the ceiling is painted orange. The back wall has what appears to be the same marble as the columns except there is a thick, off-white colored stripe that runs along the middle of the wall. The floors also appear to be covered in the same marble tile as the columns. There are small overhead lights and a television overlooking the bar area. On the right side of the picture, you can see the sidewalk, a red truck, and a building across from the Diner.

This picture as taken from the table I was sitting at inside of Landmark Diner while I was recording my observations. I was sitting close to center of the restaurant. In the picture, there are about ten tables in front of me, including 4 large booths, a television screen showing a professional soccer game, and a clock on the wall straight head. Behind me, there are about fifteen more tables, one of which there are two women sitting and eating food. On my right, there is a window out looking the street and another building. I am the only customer sitting in this part of the restaurant. Each table has four chairs, utensils wrapped in napkins, and condiments on the tabletops. There is a fire alarm on the column that is closest to me in the picture. The light from the lamps is reflecting onto the marble column.
