Cafe One Eight was our maiden voyage in renovating commercial. It was formative for us in learning who we were and learning how to find out who our clients were. Every project we do centers around real world, practical needs. And this one was no exception.
We started by evaluating what made a commercial space welcoming, inspiring and calming- all while remaining perfectly functional. For Cafe One Eight, we refinished the floors, painted the brick white, redid the bar and sourced much of the furnishings inside. Our goal was to make the space light and airy enough to feel large, while balancing the whiteness with warm, natural, woody tones.
Because our company office is small(ish) and located in Honey Brook, our team spends tens of hours working in coffee shop spaces. Cafe One Eight has ranked as favorite from the beginning, really. Not only did we create a space that appealed to passerby, but it attracts locals on a daily basis. And we love the fact that a space that we hoped would inspire individuals, is now a place that inspires our team to create and do beautiful things.
