Daodao Coffee locates in the center of Intime City Commercial District in Chengdu. The total area of this two-floor cafe is around 65 square meters.
Mental space division is used instead of physical space division to meet the need of bearing multiple activities and avoiding interrelationship. So the designer chose the furniture up to the requirements to define the space. Woods with warm colors can create a natural and comfortable atmosphere; overlapping dark metal punched panels play a role of rail to partly shield the space and keep the privacy. These two factors distill a concept-the combination of emotions and reasons in the city.
Relatively speaking, the first floor is an open area to provide a place for those tired shoppers to have an afternoon tea and chat with others to chill out.
The external bar is designed for those who are waiting for their companions. Sitting at the bar, customers can enjoy the general view of the square. What’s more, the entrance of Intime city Commercial District is quite close to the bar.
