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 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 add maximum impact and functionality while enveloping patrons in the visual language.

A very simple material palette of wood, cork, and concrete tie in with the brand colors. The result is an environment that prioritizes 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 nods to a traditional tipped shed roof through forced perspective, while an original passage creates an internal physical connection to adjacent retail.
