We are born with whirlwinds, forest fires, and comets inside us. We are born able to sing to birds and read the clouds and see our destiny in grains of sand...we lived in that web of magic, connected by silver filaments of chance and circumstance. Hyperspace was born of this curiosity.  An existing Italianate restaurant long past its prime was converted with new foundations and framing into a hangar where the virtual life takes off.  Functions like VR gaming, karaoke, a snack bar, and putting green were added to create this oasis of after school, summer break, and long afternoons of play located near the origin of the tech industry.
