GEM CITY CATFÉ

Project Background

This commercial project started with a late-night Internet search to find new places to visit in downtown Dayton, Ohio and ended up with a collaboration between the owners of the café and myself to create the interior design of a new type of business located in a historic duplex that was built in 1885. 

The overall goal was to create a high-end coffee shop and rotating art gallery/event space that would operate every day independently from a dedicated adoptable cat area. The owners' mission statement for the business is Cats - Community - Coffee and we used that mission statement as a guiding light to make all of our design decisions.
