Campos Kitchen & Roastery - A Local Labor of Love

If you call the Salt Lake Valley home, there's a good chance you've heard some of the buzz surrounding Campos Coffee. Having previously opened a cafe at the base of Park City Mountain Resort in 2017, Campos now calls a downtown plot home as well!

One of our favorite aspects of working on any project, whether it be residential or commercial, is collaborating with local artisans and craftsman to help our vision of a project come to life. Campos especially, was a local labor of love. Many individuals, companies and manufacturers local to Salt Lake were used throughout different phases of the project. For example, you can see below that the concrete floors were resurfaced and given new life by RAD Concrete Coatings, and the brass rosetta inlay was cut by Diversified Metal Services out of West Valley. 


The before and after photos truly speak for themselves. Working closely with a team of architects from Lloyd Architects and General Contractor, Brad Hansen of H&S Construction, the space was immaculately preserved and transformed. Scroll through the gallery below for some before pictures, when the space was first acquired.

Project Sunday designed and constructed a handful of custom pieces. The ingenuity and thoughtfulness in design details is evident in everything they touch. They collaborated with Artesano Plaster on the large coffee bar and cupping table - creating a fun play on materials and textures with an introduction of tadelakt plaster to complement the concrete surfaces throughout. 


The lighting installations are a #rootdoriginal design by designer Carolyn Stam. We wanted to bring in a playful aspect to the cafe - with help from Mike Bronn of Park City Iron Man, our vision came to life. Greg Domm of g.dommdesigned and constructed the pendant lights used for the two larger lighting installations, the accent lighting in the bike storage area, and the bathroom fixtures. Greg designs these fixtures as a side gig, but nevertheless his attention to detail and love for design is evident in the products he creates. 


Gray Skunk Inc. of Salt Lake helped in designing the signage for the space. With many choices in wood variants and lettering the signage was able to complement the space in an artful way. Custom bathroom mirrors were a collaboration of RC Ornamental out of Midway, Utah and Silver Mountain Glass in Silver Creek.
