San Francisco CA | Completed 


Part of the Shotwell Design Lab, Storefront Lab is a laboratory for the urban pedestrian storefront experience in San Francisco.

StoreFrontLab is an exploration of storefronts as places of community, creativity and local industry. Located at 337 Shotwell Street in San Francisco’s Mission District, and funded by the Micro Mission 888 Foundation, StoreFrontLab invites proposals for experiments lasting from one day to one month.


We don’t mean to be vague, but just as a storefront can serve many purposes — from an accountant’s office to a cafe, and from a neighborhood grocery to an atelier — we’re imagining an eclectic mix of proposals. Here are a few examples to get the ideas flowing:

An installation, activity or event that capitalizes on the storefront’s lens-like quality. An apothecary specializing in potions for peace and love. A temporary workshop with an endgame in mind Exhibits, lectures, readings, performances, pop-up stores and anything else that builds community and positive thinking.
