CP&Y was hired by Magnolia, a home and lifestyle brand founded by Chip and Joanna Gaines, to work closely with their team of designers and John Erwin Construction to create a cohesive design and construction package for this project. Phase 1 coffee shop will open fall of 2019. Phase 2 design is complete and will include the interior finish of the metal building space for use as retail.
The project will take a 5,000 SF masonry building and an attached 12,000 SF metal building at the corner of 8th and Webster and turn it into a coffee shop for Magnolia. Phase 1 of the project creates a vintage-feel coffee café and an exterior facelift for the existing buildings and related site & infrastructure.
The exterior of the metal building structure will be wrapped in a new masonry veneer. The large vehicular doors will be replaced with storefront windows and canopies. A large portion of the existing load-bearing masonry wall facing Webster Avenue will be removed to provide a new building entrance with large storefront glass windows and canopies. The interior is being reworked for a barista counter, a bakery kitchen, café seating, retail space, and restrooms. Both buildings will have completely new mechanical, electrical, and plumbing systems.
Our team provided modifications to the infrastructure and site work all within the City of Waco Right-of-Way to provide an expanded walkway, accessibility for an elevated new building entrance, and a design change to on-street parking in front of the building.

We've been pleased with the quality of work from CP&Y, and surprised that this could be found in our own backyard in Waco!
