Chow Food, Bar and Market

Chow Oakland

Chow Oakland is a project with a hybridized program – part food market, part restaurant and part commercial bakery. Chow gets its energy from the intersection of these disparate parts. Blurring the line between interior and exterior, Chow brings customers and shoppers outside and brings plant life and landscape to the inside. Additionally, the building involves the renovation of a long-vacant concrete and steel building. Wherever possible, the existing structure will be exposed, adding more interest to the experience of the project.
