Chicago, Illinois


We transformed a former branch bank into a hip, warm, and community-focused coffee shop for Bond Coffee Collective. We preserved the shape of the building and the existing drive-through and added unique architectural features to the exterior. The interior environment offers a variety of seating experiences for guests using different materials and textures. To maximize kitchen and service areas, we carefully selected every piece of equipment for quality, size, and operational efficiency. The lighting design brings all components together.
