Matchstick Coffee Roasters, a boutique coffee roaster in Vancouver, approached us to design its third location in the Riley Park neighbourhood at Main and 32nd Avenue. The café serves the local residents, the nearby Nat Bailey Stadium, elementary schools, and businesses coming into the area.


The 1,700 sq. ft. space accommodates 35 seats inside and 15 seats outside during the summer. Douglas fir is used throughout the space and is treated with lye to give it its unique finish. The natural and clean aesthetic allows locals to enjoy the space along with flooding natural light that complements the wood.
