The Dough Market — New Project Underway on Merrimon Ave

The drawings are done! Dough Market is a new commercial building on Merrimon Ave. The structure will be home to a high end grocery market with fresh baked goods, sandwiches, and coffee. Nestled into the building is a teaching kitchen.

We designed the building with an exposed steel structure. The structure allowed us to provide an open floor plan with lots of glass. The brick portion of the building speaks to the surrounding older neighborhoods and the original brick building. The brick structure is a stand-alone and continues into the building through the glass facade.

Two separate rain-screen systems grace the façade of the building. The front rain-screen will wrap the front wall of the building and be visible and one continuous piece with large windows piercing through it to let more light in. The second rain-screen system will consist of 4’x8′ Hardie Board Panels with stainless steel fasteners. The Hardie Board rain-screen defines the service areas of the building.

Several environmentally friendly options have been designed for the building. The steel structure has been designed for solar panels along the roof. All of the exterior & interior materials have been chosen for longevity and low/no maintenance.
