Rapha is a classic example of transforming a white box space into a sleek retail outlet and stopover for cycling enthusiasts. As a construction effort Hecho's expertise in kitchen consultancy combined with seasoned construction management skills, delivered this space in under eight weeks time while accommodating a limited budget. The simple cafe that Hecho assisted Brinkworth in designing is efficient in its turnover yet reinforces the community feel that Rapha embodies. We also outfitted the space with technology that allows for real time wall projections as well as surround sound. Longtime Hecho cohort, Matt Zalla, added some distinctive millwork touches throughout the space as well.
