We were asked to reenvision the interior of a sandwich shop in Durango, CO. Given a budget of $10,000, and a lot of nostalgia for the local biking community, we had to be creative with how and where we spent our budget. The update included a brand refresh to accompany the new interiors, which had to maintain the name and colors of the existing brand.
Beyond the budget, we also faced a construction challenge - we could not replace or change any of the existing interior materials beyond painting the drywall surfaces and the kitchen equipment needed to remain in the same location. The result was a focus on restaurant fixtures and elements that could be attached to surfaces to manipulate the space without major structural changes. Plus, we were able to create a kitchen prep area that was reorganized around the existing large equipment to create a space that eased congestion for the workers, and increased production for the shop.
