Dapper Owl is an adaptive reuse retail project located near Middle Tennessee State University in Murfreesboro, Tennessee.
The project utilizes an old traditional residential house that was converted into office space in the 2000s, reimagining the structure as a British-inspired pub, coffee shop, and bakery.
With the demographic target primarily being students and faculty, the transformed space makes a perfect spot for anyone in the community to gather anytime, day or night.
Architectural highlights include an open floor plan to accommodate spatial transparency and flow and an overall aesthetic update to the interiors, lighting, and finishes. A state-of-the-art commercial kitchen, complete with grease traps, kitchen exhaust hoods, bakery equipment, and other infrastructural items, was also included in the project scope.
