Contour Architecture’s design for this 1,753sf coffee shop focuses on up-cycled materials from the previous tenant – a local knit shop – combining neighborhood history, sustainability and community in a shared gathering space. Contour’s design uses sustainable strategies to create comfortable spaces to hang out. Elements include a trellised south-facing patio where patrons can sit in the shade of the structure above and trees around while also protecting the building from the harsh southern sun for increased energy efficiency. In addition, folding doors and windows on all sides of the building bring natural light deep into the space while offering views to Scottsdale Rd. as well as cross-ventilation on beautiful fall and spring days.
