JANUARY 2013 / Detroit, MI
in collaboration with Phillip Cooley
Laavu worked with the owners of the successful and trendy Barbecue joint in Detroit's historic Corktown neighbourhood to expand the restaurant. The project included restaurant expansion to the adjacent building and a small addition as well as a complete kitchen renovation. Adding approximately 35 more seats and a new bar while integrating into the existing aesthetic, we worked with reclaimed wood, steel and graphics to create a new space for Slow's patrons. We used reclaimed wood to clad the ceiling and walls, a new black and white train graphic (created by Laavu and hand-painted by artist Zac Meers) to integrate with the existing Slows logo, and used reclaimed steel I-beams and copper for the new bar.
