Central Cafe

The goal for this project was to design a space with the welcoming warmth of an Arts & Crafts coffee house within the lobby of a modern high-rise office building. To call attention to this side hall location, a tall vertical signboard calls out to the office workers as they walk towards the elevator bank. Wood detailing, tile work, and stained-glass ceiling panels are incorporated to recall the richness of the Arts & Crafts era.
