Taproom Coffee

A former florist’s shop, this small coffee/beer house is located in Kirkwood, one of Atlanta’s center-city neighborhoods. A windowside bar that runs along the storefront’s generous glazing engages the street, while a large communal table defines the front of the space. A wood-clad ceiling element runs from the entrance to behind the bar, folding down prominently along a back wall to define the traffic zone and guide visitors from entrance to barista. Strategic investment in certain materials – many of them reclaimed or ecologically sensitive – helped the very modest FF&E budget stay under control. Finish materials are almost universally neutral – white ceramic, natural wood, aluminum – while custom chandeliers and seating provide pops of color.
