Cafés have significant power in strengthening the social dimension of urban spaces and urban Cafés are more dynamic than other types of spaces. The connectivity of the café to the unique historical urban environment and creating an attraction to this place were the challenges for the designers. The project ambition was to create a subtle wall surface which has the least impaction on the historical urban environment and the city residential fabric, however it creates a bold sustainable space.
The goal was to blend the café interior space to city fabric which is occurred by eliminating the “border” between the urban pedestrian space and the café. By expanding the interior materials toward the outdoor space, the sense of pedestrian possession has been incited and encourage public to be directed to the café.
