the interior continues a similar aesthetic to the other smaller blue bottle coffee stores. schemata architects‘ design is based on the concept of creating a quiet insertion which embraces its environment. the plywood-wrapped interior with concrete floors features simple layout with a bar counter area and seating for customers. the glass façade and entrance faces onto the green-filled plaza and invites views and light inside. in addition, the surrounding walls have been constructed with a repetition of plywood walls and doors, which simultaneously serve as storage space.
