a simple and open space
This project, located in a corner of the first floor of a three-story fair-faced concrete building, is a coffee area for a women’s clothing brand experience store. The floor-to-ceiling windows can face a patch of Mexican sage and lemongrass that are growing unrestrainedly.
The original intention of the design is not to do too much decoration, with the organic symbiosis between the new design elements and the original building, the texture and structure of the original clear concrete is retained without too many changes and additions. The new floor is made of terrazzo, which is similar to the texture of cement mortar, so that the color of the floor is close to the concrete of the original building. The overall color is mainly gray, metallic and light wood, hoping to create a simple and open space, an environment that blends inside and outside, and a comfortable place to enjoy coffee.
With a large round table with a diameter of nearly four meters located in the center of the coffee area, making coffee drinkers sit around and cheerful. The operation area formed by the slanted console and the round table is independent and open, ensuring that the barista can easily interact with the customers while preparing coffee.
Both the hand-painted illustrations scrolling on the square ring-shaped soft screen on the large round table and the artist’s paintings hanging on the far wall add a sense of motion and color to the whole space.
