It is nestled in an existing 2-story late 1800’s stone building and a mid-century brick warehouse right in the middle of the upcoming transit-oriented development adjacent to downtown.

Black Rabbit utilized a rich palette and textured materials, a theme aptly referred to throughout the design process as ‘dark and stormy’.
