Known as the Miami of South Korea, Busan is well-known for its beaches and mountains. When the style group at Seoul-based Issue Much better Inside Structure Studio (mttb) approached their assignment for a beach front café in the town of Gijang-eup in the Busan Metropolitan Town location for a regional manufacturer Off.O, they understood the surroundings had to be the key attraction.
The construction housing the 589 square-metre (6,340 sq.ft) café on the temperature-crushed, rugged beach front is tasteful in its very low minimalist profile.
The café extends into three independent buildings. The central entrance house homes a bakery and a coffee bar. Angled on each sides are two independent seating locations, just about every with remarkable sights of the beach front.
Minimalist black, white and normal slate hues dominate all 3 spots with the bakery largely slate-gray and a single of the seating areas pretty much completely black with extensive tables and low-hanging lighting. The general elongated, minimal-slung style and design language draws the eye to the windows and to the rugged landscapes outside.
The boxy shape of the structures and the rigid shapes of the windows and long tables are softened by rounded facts, these as the hanging light-weight fixtures, chair backs and the edges of the decrease tables designed of cumbersome, dark slabs of wooden.
With the darkish minimalist interiors and the indoor pathways flanked by rock-filled “wells” there is a definite Japanese sensibility to the seating spots. We like the drama made by letting the stunning sights dominate the rooms.
Matter Much better (mttb) was in charge of branding, notion style and design, schematic design and style, working drawings and style supervision of this task.
