Project challenges

• Creation of a Starbucks Coffee store.
• Implementation of the Starbucks fit-out concept, requiring extensive demolition and structural work to adapt the 4520 sq.ft. site over 2 levels.
• Suggestion of bright loft-style spaces for the project, in which to place urban/vintage furniture (large communal tables, big armchairs, “bistro” tables, metal chairs, etc.).
• Different atmospheres were created using industrial lighting.
• New coverings on all floors, walls and ceilings in order to create the atmosphere that is characteristic of the concept: dark floorboards, wood cladding, briquette tiles.
• Façade remodel to match the brand identity.
• Steps of the existing glass stairway clad with wood.
• Creation of a shaft in which to install an elevator between the ground floor and the upper level.
• Change of automatic door.
