Cenote is a cafe and eatery located in east Austin. This project involved a complete overhaul from a 19th century church into a lively, comfortable space. As interior designer, this project included the entire spectrum of the layout including seating, lighting design, color decisions, bar set up and branding. We used many salvaged materials including the floorboards themselves to make the long-leaf pine tables and a deconstructed rocking chair as a room divider.
The centerpiece of the cafe design is a mural inspired by wallpapers of the buildings original era, scaled up for this contemporary setting.
