The curved form of the bar and seating layout that surrounds it echoes the “ripple effect”. It accommodates a new kitchen, amenities and coffee cart for multiple areas of service. The space is diversified by custom light fittings and hand crafted screens. The brief was to create a transitional space that would cater for the morning coffee and lunch takeaway trade, for those who wanted to dine for lunch, dinner or just pop in for a drink after work.
