To create space and create atmosphere. The definition of style comes from every customer, just like the arc of cobble wonderful and changeable.
Most people will be composed and stopped by the white Cobble window and the pictograph-like facade seats. When they open the door, they will be overwhelmed by all the bright spots in the interior space design. Cobble Stone Coffee takes the irregular curve of cobble as the starting point so that the storefront maximizes the space for indoor and outdoor interaction.
The store is located in the innermost position of the storefront on Tiyu East Road, Guangzhou. The consumer groups entering the street from the main direction will be gradually digested by the storefront along the street. In order to enhance the attraction of the cafe to the crowd and create a characteristic entrance space, the designer moves the entrance boundary inward a little distance to leave a gray space.
The original straight facade is divided into three parts, which be cut inward into concave and convex curves to create a bar that interact with pedestrians, entrance and outdoor rest space .
The bar counter and operation interface have been changed from the inside position to the place near the door. At the same time, the convex form can attract the attention of passers-by so that passers-by can feel the process of coffee making more intuitively. What is more, the guests drinking coffee on the second floor can be vaguely seen so that the upper and lower sides of the convex window form interesting visual elements.
The location under the stairs can be used as a dining passage, making the space efficient.
The white terrazzo embedded in the gate handrail echoes the theme concept of the cafe.
Pebble-shaped display shelves in the window hide a touch of “sunset orange”
The overall interior is a comfortable earth color scheme, with grey cast-in-place gravel floor and grey-green interior walls appearing soft and natural under the background of circular lighting at the top.
The original narrow kitchen and storage space was rediscovered by the designer to create a warm and surprise double-height space. The main color of caramel color combined with dynamic lamps and lanterns, warm amber light gushed out from the glass bricks, just like a flowing cake filling handed by your lover in the breeze at the seaside in summer sunset.
Morandi green sofas complement lazy afternoon coffee.
The simple wooden furniture on the second floor shows more privacy.
Since its opening, the Cobble Stone Coffee has attracted many people to punch in and take pictures, while various salon are held at the cafe from time to time.
有人说这是“法式街头的小店”，有人描述门口的橱窗仿若“美式电影里的画报”，有人评论Cobble Stone Coffee的空间和王家卫的电影一样克制又浪漫。环境作为照片的背景，由于每一个人关注点的不同而被赋予了不同的意境。
Some people say that it is a “French street shop”, some people describe the window at the door as “an American movie pictorial”, some people comment that the space of Cobble Stone Coffee is as restrained and romantic as Karwai Wong’s movies. As the background of the photo, the environment is endowed with different artistic conception due to the different focus of each person.
Designers hope to create a space that is not defined by a single, everyone who comes to the Cobble Stone Coffee can order a cup of coffee and feel the interest and artistic conception of the space from the filter of their own life.
