Isla Vista Food Cooperative in California by Acme Architecture

Founded in 1972, the Isla Vista Food Cooperative is the only natural and organic foods consumer cooperative in Santa Barbara County. Though a mainstay in the community, the Co-op was often ignored by pedestrians, not realizing what lay behind its inconspicuous storefront.

These low-cost façade improvements, funded in part by the Santa Barbara County Redevelopment Agency, give the Co-op a more visible and recognizable street presence with new wood cladding, signage, bicycle parking, permeable paving and an outdoor dining patio that incorporates miniature fruit trees and eatable herb plantings, all inspired by the cooperative’s hippie roots and ongoing mission to promote a healthier lifestyle and environment.
