Located within Commonwealth Plaza at the Kimmel Center for the Performing Arts, Volvér is the newest concept from Chef Jose Garces. The project has transformed underutilized gift shop space into a dynamic, 90-seat restaurant and bar, designed by KieranTimberlake and Marguerite Rodgers Interior Design. Accessible during performances and when the stage is dark, Volvér features intimate dining spaces adjacent to a dramatic open kitchen.

As construction manager, CVMNEXT successfully assisted the client, owner and architect to achieve design objectives and operational needs within budget. The scope of the work includes a complete gut renovation of the 3,000 SF space, the integration of standalone systems within the building infrastructure and the introduction of elegant new finishes. Self-supporting glass walls define the new expanded space along Spruce Street, simultaneously creating a separation from and link to the public space of the Plaza.
