Café

The aim here was to create a design that is perfectly tailored to the place. The only materials used are wood, aluminum, and mortar, whose textures are retained with only minimal modification. The aluminum table, lighting fixtures, and door handles are all original designs. The existing wooden house was retained as much as possible. To create an ambiance conducive to casual conversation between patron and guest, the counter and bench face each other.

iF GOLD STATEMENT

This architectural solution was designed to preserve the structural substance and reuse materials as far as possible. Where new materials were introduced, such as the durable aluminum sheeting, it was strictly in keeping with those retained. Thus, this serves to refurbish not just a building but an urban environment.
