Commonly hidden within a building's structure, steel bars are brought to light as a main design feature in Home Cafés. The reused steel bars are painted black, connected with each other and constructed as a grid that defines the appearance of the cafés.
The created cubic frameworks combined to shelves of different sizes, containing Boxes of plants, books, and lights on different levels create various densities for the interior. By organizing the cubes, the modular system allows a flexible assembly for different occasions.
Many of the wooden pots are filled with air purifying and easy-to-grow plants such as spider plants, sword fern and marble queen. Other pots contain a wide range of herbs, along with freshly brewed coffee to produce an aroma-rich environment. The café will welcome people to come in not only for quality coffee, but also to enjoy a green oasis in the midst of a polluted city.
Vine plants and ivy are seeded inside some pots. As they grow along the framework and slowly take over the steel, the plants will become a main design feature of the cafes and attract customers to return to a constantly alternating space.
