Restaurant Interior Design | Fortnum & Mason | Mayfair | London | Jump Studios

" The space uses durable materials including wood, metal and leather and the 'on-brand' colour palette is a nod to Fortnum & Mason's signature 'eau-de-nil' colour representing the brand outside of the customer context. Clean, white porcelain tile flooring and custom freestanding benches with bistro-style tables are set in the centre of the space zoning to ease circulation. The finishes have been hand-painted to allow for the furniture to be easily repaired on-site.

Wooden stools assembled by the windows offer employees the opportunity to take a quick, informal lunch. Dark-grey ribbed upholstered banquettes paired with Corian-top café tables and steam-bent wood café chairs provide ample seating, while booths located near to the windows offer more privacy in an intimate setting.........more

Showroom and Headquarters Interior Design | Rapha | London | Jump Studios

" Jump Studios has created an inspirational 1,600 sq m showroom and headquarters for Rapha that not only provides a strong emotional connection with cycling, but also boosts productivity and efficiency.

Rapha – widely regarded as the world's finest cycling clothing and accessories brand – approached Jump Studios with the desire to create a workspace that celebrates the culture of cycling.

Cafe Interior Design | Blue Bottle Coffee | Kiyosumi-Shirakawa Roastery & Cafe | Tokyo | Japan | Schemata

" Blue Bottle Coffee (from Oakland, California) opened their first roastery/café in Japan, to operate as the production base of Blue Bottle Coffee Japan. Schemata Architects was commissioned to renovate the former storage building at Kiyosumi-Shirakawa in Tokyo to accommodate roastery, cafe, office, barista training room and pastry factory. Blue Bottle Coffee is a leader of the third-wave coffee companies; they strive to achieve the best flavor and aroma, while promoting fair-trade and improving the labor environment of coffee farms, to construct a balanced production circle and to develop a positive relationship in which baristas and consumers raise awareness and grow up together.

We respect and support their stance by making the building open to outside and creating a continuous space where everyone can establish and be involved in the balanced relationship to stay aware of each other’s action and to collaborate for better results. In order to maintain such relationship across spatial boundaries, we install very large-sized glass doors and screens on each floor to maintain transparency between neighboring spaces, inside and outside, and lower and upper floors.

The former storage building had no windows, so we made a large skylight in the center to distribute natural light throughout the space on the second floor. The skylight is located right above the void space connecting the first and second floors, where the indoor greenery on the upper level reflects abundant natural light and delivers the exotic forest-like light and shade to the lower level.".........more
