with four floors of mixed-use office space + an incredible roof deck for events (such as hgAthletics pop-up yoga on June 7th!), The Yard is a beautiful, welcome addition to Philadelphia's ever expanding small business community. Located just above our new 11th Street spot in Midtown Village, this Brooklyn-born concept offers its members the private, closed office spaces they need to build + manage their businesses while still providing an open, collaborative environment.
upon entering our new 11th Street location in Philadelphia's Midtown Village you'll immediately notice the large, vibrant mural completed by Martha Rich. Featuring colorful characters proclaiming even more colorful remarks (some of which Martha had overheard while eavesdropping at our 16th Street location), this piece provides a wonderful splash of energy to the space.
We spent a relaxing morning sipping green tea with Rikumo’s founders, Kaz + Yuka Morihata, at their relocated concept store, located at 1216 Walnut Street [editor’s note: it has a garden!] to discuss where they’ve been, where they are going and where it all comes from.
