The company’s expertise in crafting inspired libations for everyone inspired us to create a warm and welcoming environment through adaptive reuse and a branded environment that is true to its identity. Our focus was on the retail and front of house areas of the new 100,000 SQ FT brewery in Deerfield, resulting in an amalgamation of the existing space.

The retail area features environmental graphics, visual merchandising, and coffee service, while a unique “Can Cave” ignites anticipation and excitement on the passage to the taproom. Our design also includes “Easter egg” graphics portraying characters and graphics from the brand’s various can art to inspire visitors to the taproom. To achieve this, we used a variety of materials, including reclaimed wood planks and timbers, polished and stamped concrete, blackened steel, recessed and sill lighting, custom chandeliers with a powder-coated copper finish, and 6,300 upcycled beer cans as a low-impact design option.

Our design choices were made with future reuse and re-engineering in mind, ensuring the taproom’s sustainability. The result is a cheerful and communal environment that Treehouse is known for, providing a memorable experience that will keep visitors coming back for more.
