| Take It Away Sandwich Shop
PROJECT: Architecture & Construction
DESCRIPTION: Commercial Design Build
Take it Away has been a UVa institution since 1992 frequently serving students whose parents were regulars when they attended The University. The owner worked with Alloy to create a well-deserved second location in the new Dairy Market on Preston Avenue.
It’s tough to stand out in a row of lunch counters so we set out to make the space bright and open. Our design gives customers a view of the workings of the kitchen and provides plenty of space for multiple customers and employees to interact at once. The large sign below the counter references a rustic-style shop but the experience for customers and staff is of a modern and efficient operation.
