The site is on the ground level at the corner of a mid-rise building known as the Nali Patio. Its signature façade consists of a series of white round protrusions. Working with the challenge of unchangeable openings along the street, Lukstudio has envisioned a site-specific concept based on the existing pattern of light and shadow. While the original site is conveyed as a rectangular grey box differentiating from its curvy context, the openings are treated as interstices within the box letting natural light in. The paths of light are further heightened by the use of white surfaces, stratifying the irregular plan into orderly zones. Each interstice serves a different purpose: a window seater, a shop entrance, a grab ‘n’ go station and two public entrances to the overall building, while the grey zones embody the cafe functions such as a bar, waiting and seating areas.
