Elm Coffee Roasters Pioneer Square, Seattle, WA Hospitality
Located in Seattle’s Pioneer Square, Elm Coffee was designed with a bright and minimalist interior, intended to be inviting for all guests. The space was created to cater to all kinds of coffee drinkers; those whom want a quick cup of coffee on the go, as well as those who enjoy a leisurely coffee break. During our design process, we made sure to incorporate plenty of space to display the in-house roasted coffee. Specializing in light roasts, Elm Coffee’s unique offerings are carefully showcased for all to see.
Our clients wanted to Elm to embody a socially-inspiring environment, so we designed a bar-like seating area to encourage patrons to interact with one another. The varying textures of wood, marble, and brick, along with the neutral palette and exposed beams mimic the pioneer square aesthetic, making the coffee shop a neighborhood favorite. Aside from their distinguishing in-house roasts, we wanted to design a crisp, clean space that set Elm apart from other shops in the area.
