When a former congressman from Guadalajara moved to San Antonio he decided he wanted to create a different kind of coffee shop near his home in far north San Antonio. We helped him create an architectural language for this retail establishment that would sell wine, books and churros in addition to coffee. Although the materials and colors reference the nearby tan-colored strip malls and offices of the Stone Oak development in which it is located, its form is unique making it something of an icon within its otherwise unremarkable suburban landscape.
