Located in The Grove, a new master planned community north of Dallas, this recreational facility is a welcoming environment for both residents and visitors. Our challenge was to design a space that blended a coffee bar/Café with a co-working lounge that is both a private space for residents and communicates the lifestyle and amenities to potential buyers.The coffee bar/cafe is a modern-country design with warm brick walls and painted cement tiles that open to custom upholstered seating and a co-work/lounge with a floating fireplace covered with tree round ends. A dramatic oversized steel hood floats above the fireplace into the stain-grade wood ceiling. A local artist painted an mural of orange tree branches along the back wall, with a large black board-printed map of the area holding community information for guests on a metal mesh backdrop. Meeting rooms nearby are available for continuing education and private events. The building includes a bright fitness center with a tongue and grove ceiling and oversized fans. Outside there is a two-story pool, complete with waterfall, cabanas, barbecue grills, seating and a themed kid’s play area. And don’t forget the custom crafted lawn games available for all to enjoy.
