Project Description

The concept behind the design focuses on creating a flexible and open interior that serves also as a gallery. Characterized by a pared-back material palette and bare walls, the project has been formed to provide the perfect backdrop for exhibitions.
The program of the scheme comprises of a closed off office and storage room to the back corner, with the rest of the interior designed by the architect to be semi-open. Within this open space, a partition in the center subtly separates a meeting and gallery space. The remaining area consists of the café, which is articulated by a large white bar, becoming the focal point of the interior.
With regard to materials, the walls and floor have been built in concrete, with the exposed ceiling painted in white to complement the minimal style. To offset this color palette, wood and brass accents are employed to bring an element of warmth to the space, with wishbone chairs by Hans Wegner sitting around a handmade table. Artificial light has also been considered, with strips used at the base of partitions and under the bar counter to illuminate the spaces and bring the pared-back space to life.
