Fonte Coffee and Wine Bar is located in the Four Seasons Hotel Seattle. Fonte, a premium micro coffee roaster, sought a high profile, flagship retail store here in Seattle. The owner asked to design the bar in the spring of 2009. We provided full architectural and interior design services, as well as lighting, exterior signage, furniture and branding design.
