Designed by Niel Parekh and Pooja Parekh from The Company of Design, the Coffee Culture café is a space divided into a series of intimate niches delineated by blue cotton ropes. the cafe also has a series of signage engraved in the flooring.
Programmatically, there is an informal sitting area and a convertible party area which are separated through a ‘planter divider’. Ropes are used in the space as an important and economical space making element which create small niches for privacy and also creates a zesty ceiling in the party hall.
There is a glass facade looking outside towards the highway inspired from the artist Piet Mondrian, wherein the entry doors become a part of the pattern itself. The furniture at Coffee Culture has been designed to be unique. Here chairs and sofas with metal framework and cushioning, finished with leather have been used, keeping the cafe more dynamic.
Overall the material palette has been kept subtle and belonging to the same family as far as walls and floors are concerned, wherein various contrasting elements such as the number plates, planter screen, rope screens, etc. are used to add vibrancy to the space.
