Master Studio | 南非开普敦Paulines咖啡馆
Tactile surfaces made from sisal plant fibres helped Master Studio foster an inviting atmosphere inside this pared-back coffee bar in Cape Town, South Africa.
The coffee bar occupies a retail unit that had previously been left empty due to its awkwardly narrow floor plan. It now boasts a slim counter running around its perimeter that allows customers to comfortably stand and drink locally-roasted coffee.
“The vast scale in which the sisal was used emotes a natural organic harmony that brings stillness to the space, allowing one to pause,” added the studio.
Timber has been used for the floorboards, shelves, and to create a simple menu board. Composite material Corian forms the surface of the high counters, selected by the studio for its “seamless” appearance.
Other than a couple of ceramic vases filled with wildflowers, decor has been kept to a minimum. Flashes of colour are provided by packets of the cafe’s own coffee beans that are openly on display.
