PROJECT DESCRIPTION

Vision 3 Architects worked closely with Johnson & Wales University and Starbucks staff architects to design a much needed café for the university’s Harborside Academic Center. The space has a warm, yet modern coffee house feel. Dark wood floors and columns, a tin ceiling and antique lighting each add to the inviting rustic character of the new space. The design also provides visual links and design compatibility with the new Red Sauce Dining Center across the hall.
