一贯擅长改造项目的Atelier A此次面临新的挑战：将小区保安亭改建成咖啡馆。设计师在空间布局、家具设计和材料使用上通过巧思，充分利用不足40平米的空间，并在保留建筑原有痕迹的基础上使其改头换面成为一家别致的店铺。 Atelier A, experienced in renovation projects, is faced with a new challenge this time: to transform a security booth to a café. Maximum use of the space of less than 40 square meters is achieved through ingenious design of layout and furniture as well as selection of materials. The tiny weather worn building is converted to a modern, chic café, while traces of its previous existence are preserved.
外立面为移动玻璃门，营业时店面可完全敞开。室内与户外平台采用颜色一致的环氧树脂地面，店内吧台和与平台栏杆均采用不锈钢和玻璃，即保证设计的统一性，又增强了空间延续感。吧台上方的吊柜可作储存之用，外部以镜子贴面，使得空间显得通透宽敞。 The whole façade, made of glass sliding doors, can be entirely open to connect with the exterior terrace. Same materials are used indoor and outdoor to ensure consistency and extension of the space. Epoxy floor of the same colour is paved both inside the shop and on the terrace. Both the bar and terrace railings are made of glass and steel.
为最少占用空间，店内不设桌子，而以兼具花箱和柜子的长凳代替，供顾客就坐和摆放咖啡，表面采用玻璃以便清洁，同时可储物或放置装饰植物；底部装有轮子，能按需求灵活放置。靠墙面的复合板家具也兼具展示与储存功能，底部同样装有轮子，方便重置店面布局。操作空间做全透明设计，即避免封闭狭窄的感觉，同时可让顾客看到制作咖啡的设备和流程。整体设计为今后使用提供了最大的自由度，家具和移门组合可以应对不同天气及活动需要。 Like the façade, furniture is also designed to maximize flexibility in order to suit different kind of purposes and weathers. A set of hanging cabinets are placed above the bar for storage. At the same time, their exterior is made of mirror to enlarge the space. There are no ordinary chairs in the shop in order to save room. They are replaced by specially made benches which can also be used as cabinets to store products or display flowers. The glass surface is convenient for cleaning, as customers need to put coffees as well sit on them. The laminate shelves can function for display and storage. These benches and shelves are all installed with castor wheels so that they can be moved flexibly to change the shop layout. The pour-over area is entirely transparent to avoid narrowing the space and to enable the customers to see the equipment and the interesting process of coffee making.
装饰遵循 Atelier A诚实自然的设计原则，墙面和天花板基本保留原貌，甚至没有填补破损的墙面，反而形成了一个独特的壁龛。管线作明接处理，虽暴露在外但排列有序，整体形成一种粗而不糙的工业质朴风格。 The decoration design adheres to Atelier A’s philosophy of authenticity and simplicity. The original status of the walls and the ceiling and mostly kept unchanged. Even a hole in the wall is preserved and now becomes a unique niche. Pipes and cables are exposed but made tidy and orderly, giving the café on the whole an austere industrial look.
