Traction Avenue Gourmet Coffee Warehouse

With the move of SCI-Arc to East Los Angeles the area started to become fashionable.
Gourmet Coffee Warehouse, a quirky brand selling quality coffee to LA’s hipsters, was keen to open a café in the up and coming area.
Our design sits lightly in the stripped-out warehouse shell. Materials and colour complement the industrial character of the unit. We used polished concrete, reclaimed timber, fibreglass and galvanised steel light fittings and integrated the owners found objects into the design.
