FUEL - ARDMORE
Project Status: Completed January 2015
Project Area: 2,500 S.F.
A contemporary cafe with all menu items under 500 calories lends itself to lively design.
Morrissey Design set out to make the interior of this Ardmore eatery as fresh as their food. The natural, vibrant colors mirror those of their smoothies and juices and were meant to contrast the natural wood finishes used throughout the establishment. During the renovation of the existing building, the removal of the drop-ceiling revealed a tin ceiling that was incorporated into the final design with a new coat of paint. The brick of the existing building was left exposed along one wall of the interior where an indoor trellis and planter direct patrons to the service counter. The seating was designed to give customers plenty of options; the layout includes a banquette, communal reclaimed wood tables, a lounge area, and bar seating at the storefront and the juice counter.
