A downtown foodie haven for aspiring cooks

This new culinary arts retail store provides a place for foodies and wine enthusiasts can gather, taste, and learn.  In addition to retail space, the prototype design houses a teaching kitchen with a large center island for cooking demonstrations or participatory classes, and tiered seating for 30 guests,

The dynamic downtown location provides an ideal shopping and learning environment to help showcase the owner’s brand and retail products. The retail space offers an array of equipment to enhance the culinary experience for home cooks as well.  A palette of neutral materials, combined with streamlined traditional forms, highlights the products and creates an inviting instructional space.
