The design is a core and shell reuse of an old car bar structure that has been vacant for years but used most recently as an antique store. The building was to be repurposed with a commitment to reinforcing the walkability on the emerging 300 south corridor with its reconfigured street-scape commitment to bike lanes and sidewalk esplanade. The goal was to capture and express the historic artifact character of the building lending authenticity to the neighborhood.  The design approach is more about discrete subtraction than extraneous addition. The new building signage designed by Prescott Muir Architects exemplifies this approach in editing layers of existing signage into a new branding for the building.
