Urban Axes: Philadelphia
Urban Axes brings people together, one bullseye at a time. Studio 6mm worked with Urban Axes in Philadelphia to open their first retail operation in the country. According to the folks at Urban Axes,
“The sport of axe throwing was invented about 5 minutes after the first axe was created, however it was traditionally undertaken in an outdoor environment, far away from urban environments. Our aim is to take axe throwing out of the woods and into the bright lights of the big city, by presenting you with ... Urban Axe Throwing!”
Located in the heart of Kensington, the building hosts eight arenas for competitive axe throwing. The building houses areas for competition, administration, retail operations and storage. With the capacity to host large groups and single player walk-ins, Urban Axes Philadelphia has become one of the hottest attractions in recent memory and is the most fun you can legally have with an axe in your hand. This project has been featured widely including articles on Philly.com, Time Out Philadelphia, Philadelphia Magazine, The Philadelphia Metro Paper, Newsworks, ABC News, 6ABC News, CBS Philly, WPHL 17 News, Fox 29 News, and The Philadelphia Inquirer.
