The Kiva

6740 SF; Completed in 2012

Generous openings cut into the existing masonry walls reinvigorate this tired building by bringing daylight inside, granting views of the merchandise from outside, and vitalizing the street corner. A full commercial kitchen and deli are miraculously inserted into the compact store, where specialty foods are prepared and served. A sheltered outdoor dining patio and a deli walk-up window allow customers to enjoy food and coffee in an outdoor urban setting. These changes re-introduce this familiar downtown business as a unique local urban market and deli, offering quality groceries, health products, and prepared foods.
