I need a creative seating layout for my cafe, the cafe design is long and narrow and i want to create something new and creative away from traditional and boring seating ideas .. the place should be cozy, should include couches, TV screens, and any comfortable ideas you may propose.
The shop is 2 floors, ground floor will include the bar/work station/preparation area as in any other cafe plus cozy sitting that allows a social atmosphere, in addition to a small play area for kids.
The first floor should serve two purposes, the social part, and at the same time provide a quiet atmosphere for people who want to work and study since the cafe is near to two universities, the first floor will include some small bookshelves in addition to a very small business center that includes an all-in-one printer and copy machine.
The main focus should be on making things simple. simple . simple ! and design should be easy to execute.
We need a mix of white walls .. red brick walls, and some few walls with drawings/printed quotes or sayings, i have attached some photos that clearly communicate what's in my mind !
Please use wood (natural color wood) but not extensively. only some touches.
Please try to add some privacy to seats without exaggerating in partitions or walls that may prevent the energy flow in the place.
Distribution of lighting is very important, we need dim lighting, catchy and warm design.
The overall dimensions are 21.5m X 5.2m - the work station, toilets, and staircase have already been allocated as per the attached file and cannot be revised. you can use the attached pdf plan but please ignore the seating allocation in the attached plan as it was just a draft.
There is a hole in the ceiling between the ground floor and first floor which we haven't decided about it yet, we may keep it and use it as a waterfall, or we can just close it. the attached excel sheet shows the location of the hole.
The logo is also attached.
The layout is attached.
