Birch Coffee, New York, NY

The job was to convert a tailor shop into a coffee shop. Our client, Jeremy, is a passionate 39 year-old coffee roaster and co-owner of a local chain of cafes. He now oversees 10 of them. The aim, in each case, is to bring into the neighborhood a place to meet, study, or sit down with a cup of Joe in a setting that feels like its been there forever. Partitions and ceiling of natural wood, local store-bought hardware, and simple lighting are a few of the ways we were able to achieve our aim.
