The giant retailer opens up an experimental LEED-certified installation coffee shop in Colorado.
When you think of Starbucks, you probably think of its ultra-modern interior with large comfortable couches spread out across an open space. However, the newly opened Starbucks store in Colorado moves away from the current design and rethinks its corporate brand identity.
The compact and portable store is LEED-certified and was constructed in a factory before being delivered by a truck. The drive-thru and walk-thru coffee shop is described as a “modern modular” with organic wooden facade where the material is sourced from within a 500-mile radius.
The Denver Starbucks is only an experimental structure that was envisioned by Anthony Perez, a senior concept design manager. Perez hopes that these very local and green compact stores could be part of a bigger initiative to redesign and rethink the way we purchase coffee.
