ON THE BOARDS

Tacoma Coffee Shop

This future coffee shop will be located within an office building in Tacoma. The tiny 177 sf space is currently being used as a janitor's closet and for storage but now spaces are being leased out to multiple tenants and it does not have any amenities in the building. Atelier Drome is tasked with exploring design options for a coffee shop that opens out to the entry lobby that could be ready for a tenant to plug in and personalize.

With this in mind, we sought to design a more neutral space. We took cues from the interior of the building, including the addition of curves to reflect the interior columns and fold up security doors clad in wood to gesture towards the existing dropped wood ceiling in the lobby. The big selling point is the view out the windows!

Below, check out the existing conditions - and that view! Then explore the design transformation with a space plan, perspective sketch and concept board below:
