港岛 – 德辅道西
HONG KONG DES VOEUX WEST
这次的设计项目位于充满历史文化交替以及发展迅速的港岛西区，西区一直蕴藏不少香港的独特文化，近年亦有不少充满文化气息的画廊和特色店铺进驻。项目位于一所著重艺术文化、个性追求及工匠手艺的的全新住宅项目地铺内，面积约1,500平方尺，充足的建筑楼底和面积以及两边的落地玻璃洽好为咖啡室提供良好的条件加入炒豆区和存豆区。Studio Adjective 近年亦有多个设计项目在港岛西区，包括共享工作室及餐厅，这次为同一品牌在这地段设计第二所概念店。
The project is located in the thriving Western District. With its historic and cultural significance, the district has attracted many galleries and specialty shops in recent years. Occupying a ground level space of a new residential development, the project focuses on art and culture, a unique personality and impeccable craftsmanship. The 1,500-square-foot corner space features high ceiling, ample space and floor-to-ceiling windows, providing ideal conditions for a bean roasting area and a bean storage. While Studio Adjective has recently completed several projects in the Western District, including a shared studio and several restaurants, the project marks the second concept store executed by Studio Adjective for a coffee shop brand in the area.
本地建筑及室内设计工作室Studio Adjective 为 noc coffee位于新旧文化交融的港岛西区臻傲，设计此咖啡品牌第二所精品咖啡概念店。此次设计项目占地1,500平方尺并增设炒豆及存豆区，Studio Adjective 团队决定以概念式室内设计为客人打造一个完整的咖啡体验旅程。
Located within Bohemian House in the old-meets- new Western District, the project is the second boutique café designed by Studio Adjective, a local architecture and interior design agency, for noc coffee. With an area of 1,500 sqft, the store features a bean roasting area and a bean storage. The design team wants to offer a complete coffee tasting experience through the conceptual interior design.
The overall design focuses on presenting a complete visual experience through zoning and flow. First, the clean and natural palette will be dominated by grey, white and wood colour in order to highlight the sense of space and zoning through the simple and rustic hues. In addition, the bean roasting, dining and bean storage areas will be separated by large white metal framed glass doors. With the roasting machine placed near the window, the bean roasting area framed by glasses will showcase the professionalism of the baristas. The layout will not only attract the passersby, but also offer customers an overview of the coffee-making process, from storage, roasting, packaging to brewing, completing the unique experience.

In terms of lighting design, the original large windows will be retained to maximize the natural light. Spotlights above the bar will allow customers to enjoy the coffee-making process, and will create a natural and cozy spatial and visual environment. The bar and the dining area will be separated appropriately to offer a calm space for the customers.
▼保留原有大型玻璃窗，the original large windows are retained
As customers will visit alone or with friends, the design will feature various seating options, including bar stools, three-seat sofas and long tables for larger groups. The different seating options will also offer a refreshing experience to the customers every time.
▼不同形式的座椅，various seating options
The chairs of the long tables are custom-made. The wooden chairs in various shades of grey will help create a light yet pragmatic, clean yet interesting dining area. The seating will comprise two parts. Those by the windows will allow customers to enjoy the view while sipping the coffee, and the two-seat sofas with a round side table create a cozy and relaxed ambience. Popular among customers, the outdoor seating will allow them to enjoy the sunlight.

THE BAR & WOODEN WALL
The 7-meter-long coffee bar will provide a stage for baristas to showcase their skills. The white artificial stone countertop will also match the colour of the coffee machine. The white metallic net on the wall behind will subtly echo the asymmetrical lines at the bar of the Gough Street shop for a consistent style. The menu will be framed with iron and white metal, and a metal plate extending from the kitchen entrance to the coffee bar will link up different areas together.

A wooden wall by the end of the bar will connect the bar and retail area with a wooden frame, and will divide the dining area and the washroom and storeroom.

以大型白色金属框配玻璃门将炒豆区、餐饮和存豆区分隔,并建议将炒豆机放置在最接近街道的位置,整个炒豆区四周均以透明玻璃设计，通透感将咖啡的专业完美呈现,不但吸引街上途人之余，更让坐在咖啡店内的顾客对咖啡由存豆、 炒豆、包装的工序以至冲调都一目了然,边尝咖啡，边欣赏炒豆过程，来一个完美的咖啡体验。细节处绝对不能马虎，就像大门上的「把手」，设计师特别设计一条圆木条子, 跟整间咖啡店物料相符,而且职员搬运时方便出入。
The bean roasting, dining and bean storage areas will be separated by large white metal framed glass doors. With the roasting machine placed near the window, the bean roasting area framed by glasses will showcase the professionalism of the baristas. The layout will not only attract the passersby, but also offer customers an overview of the coffee-making process, from storage, roasting, packaging to brewing, completing the unique experience. The designed wooden handle for the huge glass door is also a signature detail of the roasting area.

我们为咖啡店构思了一系列以咖啡为题的pictogram, 同时亦设计了一组以白色为主的地线图案来贯穿整所咖啡室，是为小趣味也成为室内设计小小的亮点。沿着地线可带领顾客到炒豆区、存豆区、付款区、零售区等等,地线的带动无形提升了点点仓库(warehouse) 的感觉。
We have designed some coffee-themed pictograms and white floor lines to tie up the entire space. These playful elements will become the focus of the interior design. Following the floor lines, customers will arrive at the bean roasting area, the bean storage, the cashier or the retail shop. So these lines will heighten the feeling of a warehouse.
