Let me introduce you to Graffiti Café completed by Studio Mode in the year 2011 and stands within a 300-square meter area.
Personally, the hospitality design was baptized with a name Graffiti but it remained a name – not a concept. I find this restaurant design very appealing since the restaurant interiors are natural connection of the architecture as it demonstrate a complementing design. Functionally speaking, Studio Mode separated the area into two different zones.
The first is the front zone incorporated into the exterior side of the beautiful restaurant giving rise to a public domain and creating a feeling of console outline. The second is the rear zone which is also further divided by the floor and roof design. This allowed the amazing restaurant to reduce its depth of space while it preserved the panoramic effect of the architecture.
We found out that the Graffiti Café actually faced a challenge in functionality including ventilation, acoustics and sound within the café. Studio Mode created solutions to deal with these challenges resulting to their chosen aesthetic designs and perception about the entire work. They also combined design elements on one side so it gives rise to structural combination to achieve the aesthetics relating to the challenges. This has been achieved through sparing utilization of materials but emphasized the expression of design on the other side.
Studio Mode developed a concept that allowed them to create identical yet authentic concept generalizing and maximizing the space while achieving satisfaction on the technological and functional requirements of the space. As a result, the restaurant design is trendy with enough dose of artwork to intentionally set the design to represent a Gallery of Modern Art located just in another level in the building.
