This intimate cafe is designed and developed through multiple privileged points of view. By striking multiple lines of possible glances running through floor and wall of the cafe, two principle interior elements are brought into close visual relationship; a serpentine dining counter bar, and continuous wall bench. Designed to maximize the depth of this small 800 sqft space, dynamic sectional qualities are revealed throughout the cafe at different points of its interior.
