Project Summary

Known by some as the “Cheers” of Oak Cliff, STASH Design worked with Davis Street Espresso and Oak Cliff Coffee Roasters’ (OCCR) owner, Shannon Neffendorf, to design a family and conversation friendly space that was both inviting and personable. The details in Davis St. are as thoughtful and straightforward as their menu - each corner of the space has been deliberately constructed to align with OCCR’s philosophy that creating - whether it’s a latte, roasted coffee, or conversation - is just as important as consuming.

Lighting


The custom lighting features recognizable coffee tools including siphons and v60 filters. We used copper cages to surround the lights and give them volume - completely transforming the use and definition of an everyday means to creating coffee.

Espresso Bar


No doubt the centerpiece at Davis St., the bar evokes a sense of nostalgia and comfort, much like the coffee it produces. Antique metal ceiling tin from the mechanic shop original to the coffee shop’s location is just another example of one of a kind details found through upcycling. The steel bar surrounding the bottom of one half of the bar is meant to be used as a foot rest, to encourage comfortable banter between customer and barista.

The Bus


After discovering this old transit bus in McGregor, Texas, we knew it would be a perfect addition to the Davis St. Espresso space. We stabilized the floor and added custom seating inside to make it both family friendly and the perfect sitting place on a nice spring morning in Texas.

Puzzle Mural


The back wall of the space is full of hand-arranged puzzle pieces we sourced from estate sales around DFW. 

The color-coded pattern creates a rhythm amidst the chaos of so many pieces, and offers a kid-friendly feel to this corner of the shop where you can also find hand-made wooden blocks for littles to play with. 

Communal Table


The Davis St. Espresso communal table allows for conversations to begin, merge and continue for as long as necessary. The top is made from repurposed fence board arranged into a chevron pattern. Old water pipe and rebar form the table’s sturdy legs and the flywheels at the bottom are sourced from Butch’s Transmission.
