Designed for a team of career baristas with a passion for the outdoors, this project was created to bring the experience of camping with friends to the beachside coffee shop. obrARCHITECTURE was tasked with providing the coffee service layout, interior design, and a sidewalk café patio. The customer area is clad with one century-old reclaimed barn wood, and is flanked by a dramatic 20′ high mountainscape mural, transporting the customers to the great outdoors.
The black tile clad service area is interrupted by a series of vertical wood inlays, simulating a tree filled forest at night, while a constellation of pendants light the space from above. A low coffee bar and large community tables were used to create a unique coffee experience that allow for increased interaction between customers and baristas.
