LOCATION: DETROIT, MI
The renovation, sponsored by the Commerce Design Refresh Grant, will transform Folk’s restaurant space into a hybrid marketplace and café that allows adaptability for COVID and into the future. Clarity of customer experience and adaptable, multi-functional use are the two most important drivers of the renovation. With two businesses – the market and the café – overlapping in the same space, it’s important that customers have easy and clear access to the product or service that they came for, and an immediate understanding of the flow throughout the space. At the same time, the beautifully stocked shelves as a backdrop and the smell of coffee and baked goods wafting around the shop will entice shoppers and cafe to treat themselves to something else while they’re there!
