Revelator Chattanooga

Our second in the rollout of this brand’s family of bright, modern coffee shops across the south

The quality of light in this Revelator location is hard to beat…it’s ethereal, and such a pleasure to work with. The architecture and materials in the space are a natural fit, composed against the backdrop of historic brick walls and bathed in daylight from the huge windows.

Revelator Coffee hired us to create their architectural brand, and to adapt it as they rolled out across the southern United States. The overall look is streamlined and industrial, in an inviting, light-filled atmosphere.

The open-bar fosters collegial community between baristas and customers, and offers easy visibility of the sleek coffee and tea equipment. A minimal, sophisticated palette of materials—white oak, concrete, painted steel—finishes the overall experience of the space.

These brand elements were translated into a “kit of parts” that could be adapted to bring their stylish, airy and communal vibe to each new location, including Revelator New Orleans and Revelator Birmingham.

Revelator Coffee was founded by our McDuffie Estate client, in partnership with his son.
