Tight space design: Munchy Mart, University of Northern Colorado

Designing around three columns was just one of many of the Munchy Mart's challenges.

The space had three columns, which was only one of its challenges with the design. Brown says there is also a huge security gate that goes perpendicular and separates the university center in half.

"One of the strategies that [Bakergroup] came up with was taking out the wall next to [the gate] and we put a gelato case there," says Brown. "That way people could see into the store from the other side of the gate, and it also gave us a different type of concept where we could utilize a walk up-type of service."
