Retail Store and Cafe
Sugar Beet is a locally owned grocery store and community hub that will provide a neighborhood source for local, sustainable, healthy foods and a way of connecting farmers and producers to their customers.
As part of the Co-op’s sustainable design we travelled to Roscoe, Illinois to dismantle an existing barn. The material from the barn is being used in the construction of the interior millwork for the project.
Sugar Beet’s non profit arm serves the surrounding communities providing access to education and healthy food choices. The Co-op provides a space for emerging entrepreneurs to sell their products. This project was done in collaboration with Hammersley Architecture.
