Cement gives a sense of simplicity
Cool coffee shop design
The arch is exotic
Awaken the imagination of space art
A coffee shop called crimson, with a ground floor area of 300 square meters and East and west sides facing outwards. A round of decoration has been carried out before the construction site, the ground has been paved, and the irregular interlayer has been built. By adding some elements, this space will become a place full of vitality. The space in the hall area is very large and bright. In the new design, some tiles are not removed, but carefully protected. Based on this, the layout of the entrance hall is designed.
The bar is located under the mezzanine, and the core of the whole cafe is also the darkest area. The bar is not simply designed as a square box to hide pipes and storage, but as two large back-to-back tile tables. Espresso bar on one side and filtered coffee on the other. The equipment is simply placed on the desktop or hung under the desktop, the pipelines are reasonably arranged, and the equipment is uniformly packed and stored. The arrangement of the bar should listen to the opinions of the barista, and the equipment and utensils should be arranged according to the most effective process. On one side of the coffee bar, there is a row of seats for customers. The chair is not a high stool, but a more comfortable single armchair. The floor under the armchair is raised by 15 cm, so that guests and standing baristas can communicate visually at the same height.
The front and rear high spaces are filled with two different types of double arch system, which divide them into different areas and smaller seating spaces. Customers can feel how the large area of space is shrinking step by step until people sit and stand comfortably. The arch is complex, but very light. It is made of designer lightweight foam material and is directly clamped into aluminum tanks. They dont carry as much weight as most arches do, and all their forces are transferred to aluminum channels and cables. The gray partition under the arch is another lightweight foam material commonly used as sound absorbing material. The foam sound absorbing board is simply pasted on the aluminum frame, installed between two cables, and ends at 60 centimeters away from the ground.
The function of mezzanine space is exhibition hall, multi-function activity room and childrens activity area. This is a high square table with a peculiar shape. In different periods, it is not only a coffee tasting table used by baristas to test coffee beans, but also a mini cafe for children under one meter.
In dark red coffee, the new and old structures stay together. These honest structural and structural designs are not only for cost savings, but also mean that we have an equal view of all materials. Steel cable, keel, electric wire, sound-absorbing board, base cement and other materials originally used for temporary facilities or hidden in concealed works can also have their own dignity as long as they are elegantly displayed. Bars, niches and arches, which used to be permanent or commemorative elements, have become meaningful forms after getting rid of the heavy volume and can be re recognized.
The project is designed as a single space with quick perception of simple lines, coordinating pure geometry with neutral tones, stone, specific vegetation, and central sculpture as the main lighting element. The elements of Oriental culture are integrated with the aroma of coffee, which is endowed with certain versatility to adapt to the future situation and use. In order to create a harmonious and simple space, different uses and functions can be carried out. The idea of creating a brand associated with a dynamic space, where usage and food supply, as well as the public sphere, can change over time, creating a multi-disciplinary space with rich specialty coffee.
Entertainment space, it is a slow down moment, the moment time stops. Its a space that doesnt pretend to give answers, or to provide conditions for visitors, so as to allow meditation and leisure, release imagination, and cultivate personal creativity. To evoke memories of public space, people decided to use the most common tiles on all squares and sidewalks. In this way, tourists can subconsciously connect the feeling of walking on this floor with the experience in urban open-air public space.
In order to emphasize the characteristics of the square, no furniture was added as moving parts. Instead, benches are designed as benches in urban public space, forming the appearance of banks, flowerpots, support areas and bars. In this way, a module will appear to configure and draw the space diagram of the whole project. This kind of pattern exists in all coffee shop departments. It creates a kind of relationship between all the elements that constitute it and seeks a kind of spatial harmony controlled by geometric pattern. Some are visible and easy to understand, while others are more hidden.
Another reference element is gold lanterns decorated with spherical or oval lamps. From these historic urban infrastructures, gold and sphere are integrated into the project. As a pure geometric figure, the sphere is used to design the lighting of the bar to obtain a simple line artifact. The total height of the sphere is about 120cm for three modules, the diameter of the sphere is 20cm for half modules, and the distance between the two modules is 80cm. The built-in gold color of streetlights is very obvious in Asian culture, and is soon associated with Asian culture. It is the preferred color for all details of cafes, such as kickboards, blacksmiths, lamps, etc.
