A concept boutique store nestled in the midst of a quiet residential neighbourhood. The formal strategy was to emphasise the linearity of the shop. The light minimalistic mood allows for the displayed objects to stand out. The facade plays on integrating squares at different intervals through a flying box attached on an open facade.
BEIRUT CAT CAFE
The design is to propose an interior concept for a cat cafe. The cafe is to have a minimalist but chic feel. The furniture is to have a simple and modular arrangement to give importance to the experience of the users with the cats. The interior finishes are to have home feel. The storefront is to be designed in an attractive way to encourage passers by to enter. The approximate area of the shop is 120 sqm with a 3.75m clear height and outdoor entrance area.
The space is to be filled with interest and playfulness creating an instagrammable feel and this is guarenteed by the choice of materials as well. After researching cat cafes all over the world, each one seems to adopt the feel of its city and the neighborhood its in. Similarly Beirut’s cat cafe should adopt the bohemian feeling of mar mekhayel, this complements the home feel to put clients as easy and provide a pleasurable experience.
