This project aims to transfer the visitor to the areas of coffee trees cultivation following taf company principles. Materiality wishes to express the earthy colours and the atmosphere of the coffee origins.
Terracota refers to the warm colors of Ethiopia, the place in which the first coffee trees appeared. A natural-color wooden structure is suspended from the ceiling reminding light wooden structures in the plantation areas.
Bar materiality is constituted from metal, ceramics, inox, marble and plywood in order to feature the high technological and punctuate process of coffee final production.
Lighting comes from a wide facade glass, a semi transparent part of glass diffuses the light through vegetation while artificial lighting comes through slits in the wooden ceiling.
