Ice Cream Retro
A fun design that would increase seating and business was the objective
for Tina Koch and her team. Space planning, lighting and furniture
design were just some of the challenges. An idealized 1950s ice
cream shop provided inspiration for the color theme of classic cobalt
blue, red, black and white. Quilted-stainless flashing, stylized
soffits and neon sinage all add to the ambience.
To save money, a red canopy and three-tier neon clock
sign were fabricated in foam and vinyl floor tiles wre used instead
of the hexagon ceramic tiles used in other MooTime locations. Thoughtful
design of shorter booths increased seating capacity by 30 percent.
Jurors deemed it a fun design, inviting and exciting for the customer.

shop in La Jolla" . . . MooTime Creamery
