Text description provided by the architects. Space + Capacity

On a quiet street, off the beaten track in downtown Toronto, Steven Fong Architect collaborated with design entrepreneur Lorne Gertner to turn a small gap between two converted warehouse buildings into a coffee shop and showroom. A repurposed shipping container houses the walk-up barista station, with both street-side and interior counters. Throughout the 330sf space, custom-fabricated and appropriated metal shelving holds an ever- changing collection of staple merchandise, one-off curiosities and accessories.
