Krog Street Market
This is an image in side of Krog Street Market which is located along the Beltline of Atlanta intersecting the trail at Edgewood Avenue in Inman Park and is home to many famous dining and retail shops within the complex. Krog Street Market which was created in the summer of 2014 has a unique atmosphere and a West Coast California feel to the environment. The Krog Street Market has a unique and very well crafted layout for the way shops and eateries are located throughout the complex. Before walking in to the main entrance, there is a separate brewery on the left and immediately when you walk in you are welcomed to an open space with a bar directly to the left and an open seating area to the right. As I observed more of this space I noticed that the environment consisted of a flat area with many shops set up to the left and right side of you, and the interior of the whole building is set up with an oval shaped approach. This particular space is quite distinctive because it has a variety of different environments all in one complex so that you can choose where you feel most comfortable. The space is open at first in the front area with a large spacious seating area but as you slowly enter deeper into the building the space is a bit crowded with tables between shops in the walkway area along with people which causes limited space between the shops making the environment feel a bit constrained. However, the layout of Krog Street Market is easy to navigate because there are no corners and it is not a closed area. The environment of Krog Street Market made me feel calm, sophisticated, and elegant for many reasons. The atmosphere has a calm feel to it because the colors present at the site were neutral and had an ecofriendly vibe to them. There were colors of light wood, white walls, and accents of gray and steel within the space because of the ceilings and chairs. The greenery dispersed throughout Krog Street Market within the flower shop and organic vegetable shop also added to the calm relaxing vibes of this space. The upscale majority white American cliental made this environment feel sophisticated and high class. Overall the Krog Street Market is a place for individual vendors to market their products and is also a hangout spot and a place to relax after work. Krog Street Market is well known in the Atlanta community and is not really advertised publically, however the site does target its intended users by the products these individual shops sell and the atmosphere the space releases. Krog Street Market is definitely a space that all should visit and spend some time at, it’s really a great spot to experience a different side of the Atlanta community!
