This renovation preserves the classic Warehouse District architecture of the existing building while incorporating modern elements. The light-filled space features high ceilings with exposed beams, large windows, a contemporary art collection, and a flowing, open floor plan.

The heart of The Shop is the commons area designed to facilitate conversation and connection. It boasts a full kitchen, seating options, coffee station, snacks available for purchase, with communal and recreational space. All of The Shop’s amenities have been designed to offer small businesses, entrepreneurs, and arts-based professionals the resources they need to grow.

Drawing from the inspiration of the CAC itself, custom murals were commissioned throughout the space. Local and national artists were brought in to adorn the walls; connecting the co-working tenants with the art community.

With its proximity to acclaimed museums and galleries, new developments like the nearby South Market District and Ace Hotel, and some of the best restaurants, shops, entertainment venues and residences in New Orleans, The Shop is primed to become a catalyst for innovative thinking and strategic partnerships that will continue to transform Downtown into a thriving urban center.
