The space was previously a coffee shop. The current owners were looking to expand their soup/sandwich take-out business by opening their second location. The design was a challenge - at less than 500 square feet, the entire back wall curved, and north facing windows, we needed to design a space with busy lunch traffic and a place to sit and enjoy their meal. We designed a geometric wrapping take out bar that helps utilize space behind the counter, while allowing for a good flow of traffic on the other side. The light coloured palette of maple and white washed tongue and groove boards helps keep the space bright and inviting.
