Storefront design for eco tourism company named Broken Paddle Guiding Co (BPG). Recently BPG purchased a historic 140 year old brick building on the main street of a sleepy river town on the Mississippi in Minnesota. The company focuses on ecologically oriented guided kayak/paddleboard/and bike tours in the bluff country and river bottoms along the Mississippi River in Minnesota. The company would like to rehabilitate the building and create a modernized historic and brand representative space with strong street appeal and comforting interior space and some light retail of select high end outdoor gear. There is also guide housing on the upper level of the building that requires a redesign.

Focus of the Project
The building is currently in rough shape and the company would like to rehabilitate the building to a modernized/historic style. Inside, however, they would like to create a space that is chic, modern industrial and minimalist that is inviting and is true to the values of the business. The building's first floor is where customers will book tours/use restrooms and shop for a small offering of boutique outdoor gear. There is a garage off the back of the original building that acts as storage for kayaks, bikes and our 12 boat kayak trailer. The upper level is a currently a 2 bedroom apartment for guide housing, with an extended 3 season porch over the back half of the garage addition.

To the extent the designs can be animated or in 3D form, that would be preferred. I have attached an image of the space which is drawn to scale. Feel free to knock out any walls and start from a clean slate.
