Caribou Coffee | UMN - Minneapolis, MN | Project Completion

A new Caribou Coffee opened recently at the University of Minnesota - Twin Cities inside Hanson Hall on West Bank.

The new location took over and renovated a space previously occupied by a Starbucks. This marks the second Caribou Coffee location on the University’s campus.

An article in the Minnesota Daily shared that the reason for the remodel was because of the popularity of the first Caribou location (inside Moos Tower), and because, “Caribou has always been one of the higher-ranked campus coffee shops in survey results.”

We were happy to be a part of this transformation, along with Dunham Associates and LS Black Constructors.

Caribou Coffee | White Bear Lake, MN | Project Completion

Caribou Coffee in White Bear Lake, MN was recently remodeled, being the first location to receive Caribou Coffee’s new design, finishes, decor and operation platform!

The design features several wood elements, including the hanging log light fixtures, wood railing cap and fireplace mantel from Wood From The Hood, and the cabinets and trim were provided by RC Smith.

Wilkus Architects was responsible for the site survey, schematic design, design development, construction drawings and interior and exterior renderings.

Thank to Carlson-LaVine, Dunham Associates and the Caribou Coffee design managers for the partnership!

Caribou Coffee | The Avenues Mall - Bahrain | Project Completion

In February 2018, Caribou Coffee opened a new location in Manama, Bahrain at The Avenues Mall. 

Caribou Coffee’s brand typically represents the iconic Midwest as most of them are corporately owned. Even though international locations still have to follow a design manual, there’s a little more freedom to make these locations unique. The Avenues Mall location features new stone columns with wrap-around seating that give guests flexibility while extending sightlines to the vaulted ceilings.

Wilkus Architects provided architectural designs services from programming through construction drawings. The use of 3D design and rendering services provided Caribou’s international design team many iterations and renderings to help focus in on the unique design, while remaining true to Caribou’s design standard. The layout allowed for 98 seats inside, as well as a small patio seating area with 13 seats.

Thanks to owners Sanjay Kumar & Shyam Rathore with BBGM Food and Leisure Co., and Caribou Coffee International Designer Jessica Rust!
