Catalog Coffee

Project Description

Located at 914 West 36th St., Suite B, known as “The Avenue,” Catalog Coffee in Hampden is a newly constructed 2,200-square-foot café that offers a unique and inviting space for coffee enthusiasts in Baltimore, MD. The interior design of the café focuses on creating distinct seating areas, including a communal triangle-shaped table near the entrance, a bench connected to a roll-up garage door for outdoor seating, a standing counter for quick bites, and two-seater tabletops overlooking custom-made toile wallpaper at the back. With bright yellow and green accents, the café exudes a vibrant and welcoming atmosphere for patrons to enjoy their coffee experience.

Catalog Coffee has approximately 30 seats, strategically placed to provide a variety of hangout spots within the café. The incorporation of different seating zones, such as the community table, outdoor bench seating, and standing counter inspired by European cafes, is intended to accommodate the varied preferences of customers. The design elements, including the rolling garage door, add a touch of versatility to the space, allowing for seamless transitions between indoor and outdoor seating. The café’s layout encourages social interaction while also offering a grab-and-go section near the front counter for patrons seeking a quick coffee fix.

Beyond its aesthetic appeal, Catalog Coffee in Hampden is a hub for community engagement and social gatherings. The thoughtfully designed space not only provides a cozy environment for patrons to relax and unwind but also offers functional areas like the standing counter and nook with a shelf for those on the go or waiting for their orders. By creating a blend of cozy corners and communal spaces, the café aims to foster a sense of belonging and connection among its visitors, making it a go-to destination for coffee lovers in Baltimore.

Church Bar

Project Description

The construction of the cocktail bar “Church” at 2219 Maryland Avenue in Baltimore’s Old Goucher neighborhood transformed a 19th-century building into a hub of community engagement and culinary innovation. The project involved creating outdoor seating areas in both the front and back, a welcoming dining room, a medium-sized bar decorated with wooden “organ pipes,” and an open kitchen for guests to witness the culinary magic. The bar aims to provide a warm and inviting experience for its guests.

This project aimed to blend the building’s historic charm, such as its brick exterior and front porch, with modern design elements. Pews were intentionally designed as dining chairs, adding a unique touch to the ambiance. The outdoor deck and rear patio provided additional spaces for patrons to enjoy their meals and drinks while fostering a sense of community. This project also set a new standard for commercial kitchen environments.

Ovenbird Bakery

Project Description

The Ovenbird Bakery is a 9,100-square-foot production bakery with a retail front-end located at 3925 Gough St Suite #2 in Baltimore’s Highlandtown neighborhood. The project involved complete construction and the bakery is now fully operational and open to the public. Our team successfully managed every aspect of the construction project, from site preparation to final construction. We handled both interior and exterior finishes, including flooring, wall treatments, and ceiling design, as well as the installation of key fixtures like shelving, display cases, and countertops. Additionally, we oversaw the installation of all mechanical, electrical, and plumbing (MEP) systems.

This unique bakery now features a production area for creating European-style sourdough breads and pastries. The retail space showcases a distinctive design element – a large umbrella-like dome inspired by Turkish art. This visual centerpiece reflects Ovenbird’s focus on incorporating spices and flavors from Turkey and the Mediterranean region into their handcrafted European breads and pastries.
