Whole Foods Market, Allentown
The Whole Foods Market at Hamilton Crossings is a 40,000 SF store in the Lehigh Valley, just outside of Allentown, Pennsylvania. The design for the building utilizes a series of exterior canopies to express movement across the front façade. This movement ultimately delivers the patron to the main entrance. Anchoring the corner is an additional large canopy to signal an exterior seating area outside of the Foundry Café and Beer Hall, which also features a lounge area with low seating. The interior, also designed by MV+A, utilizes exposed steel and concrete materials with muted color tones to let the vivid colors of the products shine.
