Hello and welcome back to the SWA Architecture weekly blog post. This week we are taking a look at a well known coffee shop. I am of course talking about The Bean. The Bean is great franchise in New York City with a total of five locations.
If you are like me and cannot start a morning without a hot cup of coffee The Bean is the place to go. They can be found all over New York City so if you live in the big apple you have no excuse! SWA worked on 4 of the locations, 54 2nd Avenue, 147 1st Avenue, 31 821 Broadway and 101 Bedford Avenue. The first three are in Manhattan and the last location is in Williamsburg.
The Bean opened up in 2003, and quickly became the “neighborhood coffee shop”. Everything from their staff to their décor to the music being played is influenced by the vibe of the neighborhood. Also, they have wonderful murals in each location that establish a beautiful atmosphere to sit, grab a coffee or maybe even do a little work.
SWA Architecture are the architects of note and are also the expeditors for the four locations. We have worked with these owners for more than twenty years and have a great relationship with them.
That’s it for this week on the SWA Architecture weekly blog post. Stay tuned for a possible bonus post to come up. If you don’t follow us on Instagram then stop what you’re doing and give us a follow! @swa_architecture
