Shambhala is a medical cannabis dispensary located in San Francisco with a pledge to allot patients with affordable quality alternative medicine. The 1500 square foot storefront conversion provides retail space for the display and sale of edible and smokable merchandise in a contemporary setting. Patients may discuss their medical issues in discretion with knowledgeable staff and the products are elegantly presented.
A 30-year-old metal building which formerly housed an electrical spare parts warehouse was converted into a 6-lane-bowling alley with a bar and restaurant. Bathrooms, commercial kitchen, and bar were ganged together to simplify the plumbing layout and overall floor plan. The mezzanine takes advantage of the double-height space and allows seated diners to watch the strikes.
A two-story morgue with a basement was converted into an indoor miniature golf course with two bars and restaurant. MH Architects collaborated with a team of talented designers who integrated the moving parts of all the golf holes with the architecture. Photo Credit: Patricia Chang
