Verve Palo Alto

Completed: May 2019
Scope: Full Remodel
Specs: A former skateshop becomes a coffee store for Verve
Location: Palo Alto, CA
Builder: Paul Lewis


A gem of a corner location meant Verve gets ample outdoor seating but the tradeoff is a slightly too small footprint on the interior of an awkwardly shaped space in a dated building from the 80’s with no plumbing anywhere nearby.


Orienting the entire space to face out the Southern facade, all windows and doors were replaced creating a much brighter and efficient interior with materials that offer long term durability and that Scandinavian fresh vibe.
