Ice Cream Parlors That Lick the Heat in Style

Ice Cream Parlors That Lick the Heat in Style

Coolhaus
Architectural Record first featured Natasha Case and Freya Estrella’s burgeoning ice-cream empire Coolhaus as a Great Recession–inspired alternative to traditional architectural practice. A bricks-and-mortar location in Culver City, for which they tapped Design, Bitches, shows that the cofounders’ design savvy isn’t limited to beloved ice cream sandwiches. The 2011 project reflects the southern California urban milieu without outshining the product.
