Identified as the Miami of South Korea, Busan is renowned for its beach locations and mountains. When the style and design staff at Seoul-dependent Subject Improved Interior Structure Studio (mttb) approached their assignment for a seaside café in the city of Gijang-eup in the Busan Metropolitan Town region for a area brand name Off.O, they understood the surroundings experienced to be the primary attraction.
The structure housing the 589 square-metre (6,340 sq.ft) café on the weather-beaten, rugged beach front is elegant in its minimal minimalist profile.
The café extends into three individual properties. The central entrance room properties a bakery and a espresso bar. Angled on each sides are two separate seating parts, just about every with outstanding views of the seashore.
Minimalist black, white and pure slate hues dominate all a few spots with the bakery mostly slate-gray and a person of the seating locations nearly fully black with prolonged tables and very low-hanging lighting. The general elongated, minimal-slung design and style language attracts the eye to the home windows and to the rugged surroundings outdoors.
The boxy condition of the structures and the rigid designs of the windows and extensive tables are softened by rounded facts, this sort of as the hanging light-weight fixtures, chair backs and the edges of the reduced tables built of bulky, darkish slabs of wooden.
With the dark minimalist interiors and the indoor pathways flanked by rock-crammed “wells” there is a definite Japanese sensibility to the seating areas. We appreciate the drama designed by letting the stunning views dominate the rooms.
Subject Greater (mttb) was in charge of branding, principle design and style, schematic design, working drawings and style and design supervision of this job.
