Project name: Dave’s Coffee
Project location: Providence, Rhode Island

The use of metal in this coffee shop and espresso bar is sharp, stylish, and innovative. The metal shelf system is especially impressive and includes well-integrated, complex branding signage. Naturally aged, knotty cedar boards line the interior walls and ceiling, adding a woody aroma plus rich variation in texture and coloring. Disparate materials (wood, steel, concrete, and plaster) unite as a rich and abstract arrangement of parts. The space is well planned. Trash compartments and integrated cream stations smartly divide the upper and lower seating areas. Powerful detailing is on display here.
