SCOTTSDALE, AZ (BRAIN) — Phoenix area cycling boutique Bicycle Haüs has opened in its new location in Scottsdale. The 6,700-square-foot building is more than twice the size of the shop’s previous location, and was designed by award-winning Arizona architect Jack DeBartolo III.
DeBartolo’s sustainable design features a day-lit interior and incorporates traditional and modern elements, including a wall made from reclaimed barn wood and repurposed high-school bleachers that now serve as stairs. The wood and the bleachers were sourced from Missoula, Mont., where store co-owners and childhood sweethearts Shasta and Kale Keltz grew up.
“We wanted to make an architectural statement that celebrates the fast-paced sport of cycling, but we also wanted the building to reflect where we came from,” said Shasta Keltz.
“This new building represents who we are on a number of levels; it speaks to our commitment, our roots and our passion for the sport,” added Kale Keltz.
Bicycle Haüs was founded in 2004 and carries Specialized, Pinarello, Colnago, Cannondale and other bikes, and has a full-service repair shop. The new store has a covered outdoor space for community gatherings and showers and lockers for staff, riders and commuters.
