How would Wes Anderson design a chapel for Coffee?
Antilope Café is a new coffee Brand in Mexico. The 80m2 space is located within the Arboleda Development in Monterrey México and it represents the brand´s first physical space where the marriage of Chiapas coffee beans and Dulcinea´s kitchen (a local restaurant by the same owners) takes place. The design came through a series of challenges. On one hand we needed to provide a fresh and unique space that could assimilate the identity and values of the Antilope brand, the quality of it´s coffee and food, on the other hand we needed to avoid having the space feel gender specific. We proposed to create an open and bright space suitable for the worshiping of coffee — A chapel for coffee.

Terakoya for Natural Science
Chiryu city in Aichi Prefecture was the 39th of the Fifty-three post-towns of Tokaido.
The site is along the old Tokaido Street where Honjin (officially appointed inn) was once positioned. It is fair to say that it is the center of the town in terms of local history. Based on such historical importance, a Chiryu-based global robot manufacturing company decided to purchase this ownerless land and make a facility for regional contribution.

This renovation project includes a café on the last floor and the roof top of a 7th floor middle-rise concrete building located in the city center of Vinh city in the middle north of Vietnam.
From these levels one has a great view over the surrounding low-rise houses, towards the river, magnificent forest scape and various aged buildings.
The buildings in this area were damaged by the Vietnam War. Most of them were also renovated with colonial style façades inspired by European designs.
Nowadays, regardless of their height, some of the buildings still imitated this kind of the façade style.

Naiipa (Literally means ‘Deep in the Forest’) is a mixed use project consisted of an Art Gallery, Sound Recording Studio, Dance Studio, Restaurants, Coffee Shops, and Office Spaces. It is located on Sukhumvit 46, a small street that connects Rama 4 road to Phrakanong BTS Station on Sukhumvit road. The project is named after the concept of concealing the architecture in the forest as the vision of greenery is expanded by using reflective glass all around.
Upon arrival, visitors are greeted with the project’s main feature and driving force in design, a groups of large, pre-existing trees in its center. From the very beginning, the goal of Naiipa has been to create architecture that seamlessly co-exist with the trees, providing a peaceful and inspiring art community for both its occupants and visitors.

Haldane Martin has designed a new café for Cape Town: a traditional French crêperie called Swan Café, nestled in the hub of the bustling east city precinct. Elegant, feminine and atmospheric, the café brings to life the charm of Paris in a space that’s completely unique to the Mother City.
The blue swan logo at the core of the graphic identity is also the central interior design concept. Owner Jessica Rushmere has always identified with the swan. A graceful and majestic creature with mythological significance, these attributes play into the brand identity and the interior design, using the swan as an emblem and feminine oval shapes throughout.

The project is located on East Fuxing Road, Shanghai, China, which is next to Yu Garden, thus is named “Yu Hotel” to echo with Yu Garden. It was originally an old hostel/chess & card room. With the changes of times and urban renewal, the owner wanted to deconstruct the new meaning of B&B on the basis of reinforcing the existing structure.
The old hostel was comprised of four old buildings that were narrow, small with inadequate lighting on the inside. The key of the renovation project is spatial restructuring and bringing sunlight and nature to the interior space that used to be narrow and dark to begin with. After more than half a year, the designers have deconstructed and turned the old place into the complex whose interior is connected with the exterior with courtyard interspaced inbetween. It is comprised of waterfront landscaping, terrace, guest room, dining room, tea room and garden and so on, which enable it to combine the functionality and landscape of B&B together and devote particular care for fine details. And it shows the transition from the old to the new happened to the lanes and alleys in Shanghai over time through the interior and soft decoration on the basis of repairing the overall structure of the house as before.

This cafe is located in Higashinada_ku, Kobe City, Japan.
It seems that it used to be a candle shop in the past.
It remained vacant for several years after this store withdrew.
The former director of the library and the young lady of a bread milling company had found the place.
Naturally, they were thinking of making coffee, books and toast into a coffee shop.
