Meat Boutique

Sunnyside, NY

Program: Retail
Area: 1500 sf
Status: Completed 2013

Designed by Laura Heim Architect PLLC, a local architecture firm, the Meat Boutique features a bold new storefront in deep red. The traditional form fits in with its neighbors on Queens Boulevard, but also harkens back to Irish precedents. The interior was laid out in such a way as to maximize shelving space and create a bright and open shopping experience. With a traditional long central meat display cabinet and wood stained cabinets, the shop seems like it has been welcoming customers for generations. Laura Heim hopes that customers and passers by will appreciate her effort to contribute to the improvement of Queens Boulevard.
