|PROJECT NAME||Stumptown Coffee Roasters Brooklyn Café|
|SQ. FT.||1,875 SQF|
New York relies on coffee shops almost as much as municipal services. Now the two are merging—architecturally, at least—thanks to Stumptown Coffee Roasters’ first , housed in an 1860’s former firehouse in leafy Cobble Hill.
re-envisioned the 1,875-square-foot space, most recently an indoor archery studio, as a community center courtesy of the Portland, OR cult-coffee fave. “We took major design cues from the building facade, with its arched windows and beautiful classic details,” she says. “Then we thought about what would make it a comfortable, fun place to hang out with friends or get some work done.”
An enclosed take on a garden patio greets caffeine hounds, and their canine companions, with steel sash doors that lead into the retail space, back lounge with ample banquettes, and rest rooms. A tin ceiling patterned by Zachary Marvick compliments subway-inspired tiling on the arched walls, warmed up by character-grade white oak floors and abundant greenery. The end result is not just another Brooklyn java joint, but a perk of living there.
