Cups Nine | NORMLESS Architecture Studio

“Cups Nine”, a Cafe and Patisserie, located in Trikala, Greece.

It was designed by NORMLESS Architecture Studio.

 

Descritpion by NORMLESS Architecture Studio:

A new Cups Nine opened its doors, this time as a Cafe & Patisserie store. Right in the heart of the school district and opposite of one of the most popular city’s squares, the Old Despotiko, the new Cups Nine comes to shake up the city for one more time and reintroduce the street coffee shops. The owners envisioned a new space that can serve their best seller coffee as well as their new products adopting them to the needs of the modern life.

The architects translated this vision into a space where the boundaries between the interior and the exterior space are blurred. The seating area, the serving bar are all flexible and accessible either from the inside or the outside. It becomes unclear where the store ends and the street begin. This was mainly achieved through the surrounding window frames, which were all custom and handmade metal work. The windows open and the bar area doubles inside the arcade. A similar thing happens on the street side where the wooden tables slide and move on the other side so that you can enjoy your beverage overlooking the city. Inside the long and narrow space, the store is divided into the serving and seating area by a long wooden bar, which is interrupted by a metal light box that is the cashier point. All woodwork is again custom made by a local carpenter.  As soon as you open the door you immediately take notice of the impressive flooring, which is a successful blend of laminate and hexagon black tiles that run through the store and continue on the wooden bars. The interior and exterior walls, as well as the ceiling are all covered with Kourasanit, a natural coating.

The remarkable mural paintings of Asteris Dimitriou, decorate the walls and has become one of the shop’s trademarks.

The new Cups Nine store came to change with its unique space and products, yet again, the urban landscape of the city of Trikala. ­

Globus the Restaurant | 1919

Globus the Restaurant is located in Saint Petersburg, Russia.

It was designed by 1919 in 2014.


Description by 1919:

Finland’s proximity served as an inspiring factor in the development of this space. The building also, found itself surrounded by a dense belt of firry forest on two of its sides; a fact that added to a sort of natural “scandinavian countryside” feeling of the area.

We used as much of the structural elements of the building in the interior as was sanely possible. Materials was rather succinct and included oil-treated Wallnut and ash, powder-coated steel and exposed concrete.

A doughnut shaped mezzanine defined the double level open space. Intricately shaped but structurally simple gemini stairs provided the communication between the two levels.

A bare minimum of partitioning kept the space on the open side while still providing quite a few secluded corners for those who can be intimidated by such volume, or simply prefer a more intimate setting.

The original layout has not undergone changes. The radial column, non-parallel walls, all the broken geometry did not have initially. Columns and strange corners of walls – we beat beige pipes, hidden and soften the line. Around the central columns, we have placed a perimeter longsofu. Thereafter, the remaining areas have already formed. The ceiling was originally such. We changed the color, added cornices and ceiling lighting in circles.

UYU Ice Cream Shop | Leckie Studio Architecture + Design

Description by Leckie Studio:

UYU, translating to milk in Korean, is a soft serve ice cream parlour that uses organic milk as a base ingredient in all of its products. Inspired by the crystalline patterns found in frost, an irregular motif is developed for the water jet cut metal wall and ceiling panels. This pattern also references UYU’s logo and identity, and playfully suggests the store’s product: ice cream.

Through an iterative design process of simplification and standardization, the sizing and coordination of these panels was key in providing a high quality finish.

Restaurant ACME | Luchetti Krelle

Description by Luchetti Krelle:

ACME makes the most of the building’s existing features and heritage. The brief, a refined yet casual space where the food is the hero.
A pared back and considered design, the restaurant is split into 3 distinct spaces over 2 levels. The front bar is a casual dining experience, high top tables and window seating open to the streetscape and passers-by. The surrounding walls have been left untreated, showing glimpses of exposed plaster and stripped paint. Within the formal dining space, dark timber banquette seating sits amongst fresh painted walls complimenting the rough plaster of the front bar and an open kitchen maintains the casual attitude of the restaurant.
Downstairs the private dining room is a raw and intimate retreat. A private cellar that offers diners an exclusive space with existing walls exposed and the sandstone fireplace left intact. An island bench offers an informal meeting space for private diners to gather before their meal, guests are then ushered towards the custom-made extendable table, striking in its design, the table offers collapsible ends that raise and lower dependent upon group size.

The café invites shoppers to enjoy home-made products from organic and local farms in a cosy setting. Visitors experience a warm, relaxed atmosphere and are invited into the living room like guests calling on good friends.

An extraordinary ceiling element, which unfolds from the entrance through to the rear section, leads into the 225m² room. The use of high-quality materials, such as solid oak, hand-stitched real leather and Italian clay flagstones, represents corporate values such as tradition, honesty and quality.

The latter sets the tone for the dining area with approx. 92 seats in its characteristic openness, creating an exclusive area in which to present the diverse assortment of products. A wide variety of seating options offers the very varied target group the right seat for individual requirements.

Restaurant in Sweden | Richard Lindvall

Description by Richard Lindvall:

Before the one year long renovations, the premises were used by the Swedish Tax Agency and consisted of a maze of tiny meeting rooms with a ceiling height of 240 cm.
The interior is inspired by Scandinavian minimalism with an industrial twist and with Inspiration from hotels and restaurants in Shanghai, New York and Amsterdam. Big impressive buildings with lots of space and hard materials, but which are still keeping a welcoming atmosphere are rare in Sweden. It was important to create a warmth in the environments, but still keep it raw and fresh.
48 tons of concrete was poured into the construction, not only for for the floors, but also to construct the two bars, a reception desk, a large sofa table and a 3,5 meter wash basin in the rest room.
The boards on the walls is made from expanded metal, cut into smaller segments and placed in black lacquered steel frames, which gives a hint of Art Deco style. The tables and sofas are designed by Richard and made by a carpenter in Lithuania, The big fig tree at the entrance was chosen mainly for the amazing gray bark.

The large space is divided into three rooms, all revolving around a central black iron beam structure that has been designed to serve unique functions for each area. The center of Bistro 38 holds a long two-level sofa where one side faces the massive concrete bar and the other, lower part is turned towards the dining area.
In Poche 36, the central iron beam has been transformed into a flexible table that can serve both as seating and as service station for the staff. In the café area the main iron feature was turned into a high shelf structure with bar seating around the base.

Bar- Restaurant “Alemagou” | k-studio

Description by k-studio:

Alemagou is a bar and restaurant on the sands of Ftelia Beach, in Mykonos.

The concept is holistic, with every element of the project telling a common story and coming together to create an inspirational yet laid-back atmosphere, perfectly suited to the site.The menu revisits traditional, well-loved Greek recipes to produce simple but intriguing new dishes.

The cocktails and the music selection also offer new combinations of favourite ingredients. The architectural design is an extension of the same approach, creating an exciting reinterpretation of tried and tested, traditional building techniques.

Taking inspiration from typical Cycladic architectural elements such as whitewashed, smooth-edged houses; dry-stone walls that blend into the scrubby landscape; practical, hardwearing screed floors; and natural reed-thatched roof insulation, the familiar textures are applied to contemporary, organic forms to create a unique character.

Added to the palate are the dominating natural conditions of the site: the strong winds that make this beach a surfer’s paradise; the burning 40-degree midday sun and the harsh, dry, rocks of the encroaching landscape. Rather than attempting to block the effects of these natural forces, the design welcomes them, embracing their qualities and turning them to its advantage.

Natural reed thatch is used to create a 60cm deep, inverted field for a canopy that sways soothingly in the dissipated wind, allowing air to circulate and the space to stay cool. Throughout the day dappled sunlight filters through the reeds, lighting and shading the space simultaneously. At night down lighting continues to animate the canopy from within, creating a warm, intimate atmosphere for evening dining.

Beneath the canopy an un-interrupted topography of cool screed terraces flows gradually down from the restaurant to the sand, via the bar and lounging areas. Circulation is organized to create specifically designated areas for dining, drinking or relaxing yet their softly blurred, low-level boundaries let light and air flow naturally through the open space and allow continuous views across the beach to the sea and sunset.

The combination of these purposely designed and naturally occurring elements creates a multi-sensory architecture that sits in harmony with the environment, provides a natural, comfortable refuge from the elements and creates an exciting, sociable atmosphere.

Di Café Deli | Buck Studio


Description by Buck Studio:

di cafe deli is a vibrant café with its own bakery. There is always a smell of aromatic coffee and freshly baked bread made according to traditional recipes – without artificial additions and taste improvers.
Project of di café deli is a continuation of our concept created for dinette bistro – a friendly daily place with casual atmosphere and interior design inspired by the 50s.
Similarly to dinette the central point of the place is a large dining table, accompanied by a grand sideboard with wooden mosaic and a solid marble bar counter – all customized to adjust the shape of the interior plan.
The kitchen – in this case enlarged by a bakery – is easily visible through the walls which are made of translucent mix of glass and steel.
Other characteristic features already known from dinette are wooden retro chairs, a spatial installation of white hand made glass lamp shades and natural finishing materials like marble and wood.
Friendly and easy going cafe experience is emphasized by the black and white checkerboard floor tiles pattern which also appears on a menu pages – so that guests can use them as a board for checkers game while they are enjoying their coffee or waiting for their lunch.
