Blue Tokai

Cafe/2016

Blue Tokai Coffee Roasters commissioned the Studio for their space in Mumbai. The brief was to design a single structure, which would function both as a roastery space and a small café. For the Studio, bringing out the brand’s USP-  laboriously produced, handcrafted coffee was most important to the design process. This informed the prominent circular windows (which allow for regular peeks in to the roastery), and designing the large, rectangular-shaped floor to show off the process of coffee making. The restaurant area, filled with simple benches, and basic lights is meant to emphasize coffee and coffee-making as the hero. A striking sarkari blue is also used to brighten up the space.
