Nomad Coffee

Name: Nomad Coffee
Location: Barcelona
Design: Unknown


There is something great about the simplicity and unfussy nature of Nomad Coffee. Located in Barcelona, Nomad started out as a small cart and has since transitioned to a brick and mortar space, their name speaking to their roots. 


The unimposing and warm facade welcomes you into a communal space with a utilitarian aesthetic that emphasizes the craft and connection.

Osteria Oggi Adelaide

Name: Osteria Oggi Adelaide
Location:Adelaide, South Australia
Design: Studio Gram



Utilizing the natural light and architecture of their space, Osteria Oggie is a bright, light-filled space with a focus on repetition and simple materiality. 




Balancing traditional Italian design with the very on-trend pastel color story, the interior feels both fresh and light but also rooted in history and simplicity. The minimalist and pure material palate helps balance the geometric floors and repetition of curves. Attention to detail within such a simplified space elevates the interior and creates a sense of richness and depth.

Carter Bar & Kitchen

Name: Carter Bar & Kitchen
Location: Amsterdam, Netherlands
Design: Nicemakers


Carter Bar & Kitchen, located in Amsterdam, is a warm and gilded reprieve from the everyday. Chestnut and chocolate browns, high gloss blacks, and shiny brass play off each other perfectly within the two story space.

I love the simple shelving behind the bar and how it helps balance the scale of the two-story open space in the bar area. 


All three areas within the space have a distinctive feel but come together in a cohesive manor. All feel warm, rich, and layered which makes for a space you feel you could sit and stay for a while.

Verden E5

Name: Verden E5
Location: London
Design: Otherworks


Located in London, Verden E5 is a modern wine bar and deli. With bold geometric lines prevalent throughout the interior, the space is modern and dramatic.







Intimate lighting in the dining room contrasts the lighter, airy bar space. I love the bold lighting in the bar area and enjoy the strong geometry created by use of simple fixtures.

Al Tun Tún

Name: Al Tun Tún
Location: Valencia, Spain
Design: Sandra Tarruella



A controlled material palate and great amount of natural light help make Al Tun Tún a warm, beckoning space. 





The beautiful open kitchen puts the cooking at center stage. Simple lines and a beautiful lighting installation add just enough to support the theater and help with the overall scale of the two story space.

The Potting Shed

Name: The Potting Shed (at the Grounds of Alexandria)
Location: Melbourne, Australia
Design: Acme & Co



It looks like The Grounds of Alexandria has been growing; both literally & figuratively. One of the newest additions to their already beautiful space (Check out photos of their roaster and cafe, here.) is The Potting Shed. This patio addition does a great job blending into the grounds and creates a welcoming retreat.



Check out the custom draft tower and more images after the jump-




As the name implies, The Potting Shed was designed to resemble just that. Warm shades of green, mismatched patio chairs, and potting tables all help tie the theme together and give you the impression you truly are enjoying your beverage in their garden.


We love the shed itself, with it's operable windows opening up to become the bar and custom draft tower. The brick backdrop and tractor stools add one more layer of warmth to this local watering hole.

Shortstop

Name: Shortstop
Location: Melbourne, Australia
Design: Foolscap 



A good doughnut is always a good find. A good doughnut in a great space; can you ask for more?
Foolscap crafted a space for Shortstop Coffee & Doughnuts that is bright, light, and playfully speaks to the key offering.


We love the subtle pattern created from the tile installation and the beautifully displayed doughnuts within their glass case. Subtle, well-thought out details like these help elevate the simple interior.


Read on for more photos-



Throughout the space you will notice the circular shape present; a playful and fitting ode to the doughnut. Paired with light, blonde wood, glossy tiles, and light concrete the space feels bright and warm.


Warm walnut wood tones help balance out the space and add a bit of richness at the entry. The custom tables and bar help maximize the small square footage of the space and allow for a moment of respite.

Our Work; The Depot

Name: The Depot
Location: Reno, NV
Design: Kaper Design


We are excited to share with you the recently opened spot we completed in Reno, NV.   The Depot was named after the buildings' 1910 origin as the depot for the the Nevada- California- Oregon railway. The design of the space plays tribute to it's rich history while firmly planting itself in the present.





The large space features three floors; the first floor showcases the brewing and distilling that takes place behind the bar and includes bar seating, a dining room, host stand, and restrooms. The kitchen, additional bar, dining space, private lounge, and additional restrooms are located on the second. On the third floor there are offices and the barrel room.









Barrister bookcases and custom millwork great you as you enter. Ceiling details call back to the beautiful slat benches once present and common within train depots throughout the country. 

We wanted to keep the palate warm and understated to allow for the architecture of the space, and the brewing equipment behind the bar, to shine. 


The second floor bar features beautiful concrete tiles and and industrial seating while the first floor dining space, shown below, features a large-scale map showing The Depot's location and old rail lines that we had created as a wall covering.

Alfred Coffee

Name: Alfred Coffee
Location: Los Angeles, CA (Multiple)
Design: Joshua Zad



One look around the Alfred Coffee in the Alley location and you'll realize this is not your typical coffee shop. Bolder than what we are used to, it creates a great buzz of energy that is refreshing from a design stand point. 





Keeping it simple with black and white, the play with contrast and shape help create a dynamic interior that is anything but traditional. 


Personally, I love the use of the red neon and the gold counters. They elevate the otherwise simple materials and create a great energy within the space. The addition of aqua in the Brentwood location act in the same manner, keeping the space bold but still approachable and refreshing.

Olio

Name: Olio
Location: St Louis, MO
Designer: Unknown


A converted 1930's filling station, Olio is half of a dual project located in St Louis. Utilizing the existing structure, windows, and garage door the space has just enough grittiness and authenticity offset by industrial lighting and an inviting warmth. 




As a small space, the scale of the bar emphasizes the casual atmosphere. Reclaimed tiles, exposed wall finishes, and utilitarian & industrial lighting strongly root the stations past.
