An interesting project posted to the Remodelista blog today, the Stable Cafe. This is a renovation of an old stable building by architect Malcom Davis. They have placed their own office on the upper level, and opened a small cafe on the ground floor level which includes a meeting/dining room that can be rented/reserved for events or meetings. First of all the place looks very cool - check out the large conference table made out of maple staves from a bowling alley floor. But second they have created a mix of office and social cafe/coffee shop space that invites other workers into the daily mix of activity. I like this idea of private offices creating the opportunity for community functions, similar to the part time Gallery function of Primer previously posted.
