Acknowledged as the Miami of South Korea, Busan is famed for its beaches and mountains. When the design staff at Seoul-based mostly Subject Superior Inside Design and style Studio (mttb) approached their assignment for a beach front café in the town of Gijang-eup in the Busan Metropolitan Town location for a area model Off.O, they knew the surroundings had to be the principal attraction.
The construction housing the 589 square-metre (6,340 sq.ft) café on the weather-beaten, rugged seashore is stylish in its lower minimalist profile.
The café extends into 3 separate properties. The central entrance area homes a bakery and a espresso bar. Angled on the two sides are two individual seating spots, every with remarkable sights of the seashore.
Minimalist black, white and pure slate hues dominate all a few areas with the bakery primarily slate-grey and a single of the seating places almost absolutely black with lengthy tables and lower-hanging lights. The total elongated, very low-slung design language attracts the eye to the windows and to the rugged scenery outside the house.
The boxy shape of the buildings and the rigid shapes of the home windows and prolonged tables are softened by rounded information, these kinds of as the hanging light-weight fixtures, chair backs and the edges of the lessen tables made of cumbersome, dark slabs of wooden.
With the dim minimalist interiors and the indoor pathways flanked by rock-crammed “wells” there is a definite Japanese sensibility to the seating locations. We enjoy the drama designed by allowing the impressive views dominate the rooms.
Matter Superior (mttb) was in cost of branding, thought design, schematic design and style, operating drawings and design and style supervision of this job.
