Project name: eSports Gaming Cafe
Project location: Boston
Firm name: Merge Architects with Ibañez Kim
Jury comments: The design of this shared gaming cafe creates a compelling entry experience for an otherwise unremarkable storefront. The existing space is stripped back to reveal the original ceiling, walls, and concrete floor. Once through the portal, bold color and dynamic shapes guide the user through the various spaces.
