Located in the heart of Detroit's New Center neighborhood, Cafe Nord is the second location for the community-based Cafe con Leche. The former bank office was opened up both in its volume as well as its connection to the sidewalk via an operable storefront system. An abstraction of the urban plan for the owner's native home of Barcelona forms a geometric cloud that defines the barista space. This cloud hovers over a large counter element featuring a blend of reclaimed white-washed maple flooring.
