EPOCH FAR WEST | interiors, ffe
The given conditions of the Epoch Far West building guided the design to a concept that allowed for the interior to be “exposed.” Since the primary goal was to keep the existing structure while giving the facade and interior a facelift, we kept elements such as beams, concrete masonry walls and floors to show the ruggedness of the building as it once was. The natural look of the wood framing and floor-to-ceiling windows where the garage doors previously existed give it an authentic feel while allowing the natural light to flood the space. Modern millwork expresses a contemporary style that creates a unique environment surrounding the barista bar. In contrast to the interior being exposed and rugged, the exterior of the building continues with the idea of modernity and is implemented on the facade. This establishes a strong presence for the building in its more traditional surroundings.
