Alterra Coffee Roasters, which is now called Colectivo Coffee, is a destination for serious caffeine connoisseurs and locals looking for an inspiring place to meet.

The exposed timber and warm colors of the building are the perfect setting for sipping a cup of joe. Comfortable areas, both indoors & out, have café and lounge seating. Great views of the large bakery let customers see the delicious edibles being created. The building also houses Colectivo’s offices and conference rooms.

Lighting consists of unique decorative fixtures and track lighting to enhance the unique style of architecture. Enclosed fixtures were used in the bakery to accommodate code. The façade, landscape and parking lot lighting are decorative and highlight the many outdoor architectural features. Separate HVAC systems were used for the kitchen and dining areas to ensure proper venting and heating/cooling, providing continuous comfort for staff and customers.
