Coffee and Roastery. 200 m2.
This coffee shop is located on Jalan Braga just in the centre of Bandung. It has strong heritage characteristics which dominantly occupied by massive blocked building whose façade directly attached to the pedestrian.
This project tried to present totally different impression with other coffee shops in the neighbourhoods that beautifies the sightseeing area, yet it is a modern one. The coffee shop façade is pushed backward from the existing which creates a large void to let the pedestrians, who passed in front of this store, turn their heads around. The building clear glass makes the interior more transparent. Dry garden with tree and gravel becomes entrance pathway to welcome the visitors.
The concept of interior is minimalist, which is predominantly in white colours provided with wood furniture. The bright warm light colour enlightens your mood to create a homey impression. Wide tables are preserved to make customers comfortable to finish their works or hanging out together. The bar table blends with the wall colour but remains as a focal point because of its size with all supporting minimalist elements such hanging bar lamp, backdrop design, and dropped ceiling. All these elements give refreshing and clean look that makes people to drop by.
