We really loved helping Lauren Bailey and Craig DeMarco bring their Arizona WineCafe concept to Denver. Colorado is a perfect fit for this team, and we love their focus on repurposing old buildings. This particular building was the former Denver Book Bindery, which our book wall is a nod to. Xan visited their existing locations in Arizona in order to get a feel for their established brand. We enjoy the challenge of integrating an existing brand with a fresh take on the design of the space. Check out the photos, then go get a glass of wine!
Biscuits, pizza, and beer — oh my!
Xan has worked with Drew Shader on two locations now, we also designed the South Broadway restaurant. We love transforming old buildings and giving them new life. The goal was to maintain the beauty of the crusty old structure while adding branded finishes. We want the space to feel like it has a lived in quality, that it belongs to the neighborhood. The branded elements created in the initial restaurants are switched up to bring in variation between locations — the neon cowboy, bombs and spacemen have changed, while still feeling like the same business. Loyal patrons will feel right at home.
