Wesley Andrews Conversation Compliments - Minneapolis, MN

This longtime vacant historic mixed use building was revitalized with an urban retreat center and Wesley Andrews coffee shop.  The result has breathed life into a previously underused stretch of 26th St, near Eat Street.  We intentionally created minimalist interventions in order to highlight the raw brick space and provide an airy, welcoming room.  A restrained palette of white, dark stained wood, and industrial metal accents work together to compliment the historic structure, while adding a modern update.  The small space required efficient planning to maximize seating area, while accommodating an intentionally "slow" process of brewing ethically sourced coffee and teas.
