Lowney’s Tony Valadez leads this design tour of the newest location of the Chow franchise by Lowney Architecture.
Chow Oakland is a project with a hybridized program – part food market, part restaurant and café and part commercial bakery. Chow gets its energy from the intersection of these disparate programs. Blurring the line between interior and exterior, Chow brings customers and shoppers outside and brings plant life and landscape to the inside. Additionally, the building involves the renovation of a long-vacant concrete and steel building. Wherever possible, the existing structure will be exposed, adding more interest to the experience of the project.
