CAFE - concept design/development

My brief was to develop a interior concept for an artisan coffee shop, who are introducing particular brewing techniques to Scotland. I worked to develop a design which reflected the scientific, methodical and theatrical nature of the brewing process. Different materials - exposed masonry, finished wood, reclaimed metals and fittings, polished concrete - reflect the processes of refinement in brewing practice and aimed to produce a unique take on the ubiquitous "coffee shop" aesthetic, By opening visual links between the site's discrete spaces, customers can watch the baristas at work and become engaged in the art of coffee-making.
