adam kalkin: illy café

adam kalkin retrofitted his pushbutton house 1, transforming it into a mobile coffee house. the design was made using the hydraulically powered shipping container, kalkin originally made as a single unit home. all the furniture and fixtures were removed and replaced with a coffee bar. the centre holds the sitting area, complete with a long table, library and chandelier. , the coffee bar is located at one end of the main floor space, complete with 3 espresso machines. this area also hides all the wiring for the bar. to the left is a desk space with a computer and a washroom (meant only for the daring). on the right hand side is a lounge with couch and side tables. the mostly white space also boasts a white awning to shelter the side areas during the rain or hot summer sun. when closed, the tiny illy sign is the only signal that this shipping container is something unexpected.
