Woodshed Coffee + Tea

A zen retail space for a coffee and tea brand prioritizes responsibly sourced ingredients and a calming environment.

Woodshed Coffee & Tea is the flagship retail location for this emerging specialty tea and coffee brand. Gardner helped bring the owner’s vision to life with a design and build-out on tight constraints in a blank space retail shell. Conscientious design decisions were made to add maximum impact and functionality while enveloping patrons in the visual language.

Utilizing a very simple material palette between wood, cork, and concrete tied in with the brand colors puts the emphasis on the art of making coffee and tea, while also inviting patrons to relax and enjoy their moment of zen. The visual transition from white to blue highlights the alchemy of the process from raw ingredients to the final drink selection and service. A canted ceiling implies the tipped shed roof of a traditional woodshed through forced perspective, while an original passage created an internal physical connection to adjacent retail.
