Cafe 220°

Geistlweg Architektur as Architects

A cafe with everything that makes it a cafe.


The client wanted a qualitative Cafe with an integrated coffee roaster designed by Franz Riebenbauer from Vienna in collaboration with us as architects.


The concept: The challenge was to use the very limited space available to achieve the sense of a spacious cafe. For this, a design vocabulary of wood furniture, cream colors and leather presented itself. The use of stools instead of chairs makes the room feel larger and has also been very well received. A continuous bench along the outside wall emphasizes the length of the room and extends the space. The organization of background spaces - guest toilets, kitchen, preparation areas, offices and staff toilets - have been completely reorganized with the aim of severing the service areas from public areas. A displacement ventilation system has been installed under the continuous bench to achieve a permanent high air quality. The bar is formally simple and monolithic in its execution in concrete and has a reassuring presence in the room. An all-around and back-lit glass strip in the floor separates the monolith from the ground making it appear lighter without losing its character.


Show roasting: A coffee roaster is an integral part of the Cafe area. There, the self-imported Arabia-beans from Guatemala will be freshly roasted and served, as well as exhibited and sold in a separate sales area. Ventilation over an existing chimney of the immediately adjacent neighbor's house was a challenge to be mastered. A very small portion of the exhaust air is during the roasting process smuggled into the air to the fine fragrance throughout the room to spread fresh cafe.


Cafe Bean as a sample: An abstract Bean Cafe was spotted as a wall pattern using matrices. The pattern appears at the sign above the entrance and a wall relief of the cafe and back on. In addition, the cups, plates, napkins and coffee packs were designed with this logo.
