Ragamuffins Coffee House

Ragamuffins Coffee House was started by Redemption Community Church. The coffeehouse operates as a business during the week and the church uses the building on Sundays for worship.

As the building is located in the historic district, the exterior façade was re-clad with new siding and trim to maintain the existing color palette and blend in with the look and scale of the surrounding buildings.  The inspiration for the interior space was derived from the desire to have a peaceful and tranquil space with a palette that represents calmness and the blend of coffee and milk. 

The space was designed with natural colors and materials including reclaimed wood on the front of the coffee counter, reclaimed brick on many of the walls, and a wood trellis at the ceiling to give the seating area an outdoor feeling.

The furniture and lighting was chosen to be rugged, yet create a comfortable environment.

The existing wood floors were salvaged during construction and refinished to match the character of the building.
