While on a visit to London, Tampa businessman Blake Casper found himself drawn to the architecture, feel, and use of English shops and clubs. Sensing the potential for these kinds of multi-use spaces in his hometown, Casper began to conceive a place where people could meet, mingle, work in solitude, or simply pass a few moments outside of their hectic lives. For the adventure of launching this novel concept, Casper assembled a team of architects, engineers, designers, and craftsmen to transform the old building into a state-of-the-art complex: Smith-Dalia Architects in Atlanta; EWI Construction in Tampa; Project Manager James Brearley; and Interior Designer Mary Beth Courier. Then came the team that would bring the building to life: Dave and Susan Ward of Buddy Brew Coffee and Abigail St. Clair of TeBella Tea Company came on board; Executive Chef Erin Guggino began to develop the menu for the Restaurant; Allison Casper Adams created the Shop; and Alison Powell devised the Bookstore. And so, in 2011, Oxford Exchange began to take shape, writing a story that begins at the front door and continues throughout the building every day. Depending on how you look at it, Oxford Exchange is either a large house, or a small town. Each area offers its own feel and personality, and yet each contributes to the whole, which is designed to fulfill a diverse range of needs, from coffee to conversation. Oxford Exchange was hand-built, using materials from over a dozen countries: Italian marble, reclaimed white oak, leather panels on walls and ceilings, and brass fittings are just a few of the details that enrich the experience.
